HyperFest welcomes 17-year-old powerhouse Mallrat to line-up
Published on 25 January 2017
Introducing 17-year old powerhouse Mallrat.
Gearing towards total alt-scene domination comes Brisbane-based hip-hop powerhouse Mallrat, the elusive teen slaying rap/pop/electronic fusion with her debut offering ‘Suicide Blonde’. At just 17, the young artist has already sat pretty in the Triple J Unearthed High charts, added to rotation across community radio as well as being picked up by international tastemakers as a “one to watch”.
The self-professed ‘Hannah Montana of the rap game’ releases her home-made video edit for her debut single, produced by Tigerilla (Allday, Baro).
Dripping with nineties nostalgia and spawning a series of jump cuts, the clip features the likes of a pre-pubescent DiCaprio, the Ninja Turtles and a string of ‘90s babes rocking holographic everything.
With much more on the horizon showcasing her production chops, the obvious progression for this overachiever can only be upward bound.
Check out Mallrat's banger "Uninvited" and catch her at HyperFest on Saturday 18 February. Tickets available here for only $30!
