Introducing: Mallrat – Rockstar

Mallrat just released her new single Rockstar.

Written and recorded in her part-time home of Los Angeles, Rockstar is a collaboration with songwriter/producer Tommy English (Kacey Musgraves, Carly Rae Jepsen). Inspiration can clearly be heard from ’90s dream folk icons Mazzy Star, the hazy indie rock that populated the legendary soundtrack to The OC, and Shaw’s teenage idols Violent Soho.

What a great piece of music. Sounds are floating through the air. Mallrat captivates listeners with lethargic guitars, low-fi drums, outstanding vocals, and catchy hooks.

Lyrically, she’s on point. Every line is essential.

”Maybe I’ll fall in love with a rockstar,
We’ll be married forever,
I’ll forget all about ya, one day.
Maybe when I’ve won all the Grammys,
and I’ve got my own family,
I’ll forget all about ya, one day.”

Mallrat creates her own lane. She speaks the language of art. Rockstar deserves 5 stars. Definitely worth a listen.
