BRISBANE indie-electro artist Mallrat has created a trademark sound over two EPs which is unmistakable. Nostalgic lyrical sketches with hypnotically repetitive melodies over chilled downbeats.
It's brought the 20-year-old a wealth of success with singles like Groceries, but on her third EP Driving Music the specific sound has become almost impossible to escape. Driving Music does have a darker and more electronic vibe than In The Sky (2018), this is most notable on the industrial Drive Me Around. However, Circles and When I Get My Braces Off repeat Mallrat's road-tested sound without deviating.
The lead single Charlie is the EP's most beautiful moment full of Mallrat's best lyrics about her parents fighting and domestic dreams.
