Mallrat, Basenji – Nobody’s Home (video)

Feb 8 2019

The 20 year old Brisbane artist Mallrat has a penchant for writing sticky melodies that you just can’t shake – her music has garnered attention from the likes of NY Times, NOISEY, Stereogum and more. PAPER Magazine recently named her in their “100 Women Revolutionizing Pop”, and she also opened for Post Malone and Maggie Rogers.

Having grown up in the sleepy town of Brisbane, Australia, Mallrat finds beauty in the mundane. With refreshingly honest observations of day-to-day life and her relatable and confessional lyrics layered over saccharine melodies, there’s a slow-burning restlessness in her sound that is impossible to ignore – her songs perfectly encapsulate all the weirdness and wonder that comes with being a teenager.

Her new track “Nobody’s Home” is a glittering and melancholic pop song about ill-timed love.
