mallrat drops new track, “uninvited”

“These days, rather than be the cool girl at the party, it’s far cooler to be girl at the party singing about how coolness is a total sham in the first place (just see Alessia Cara’s “Here” or Hailee Steinfeld’s “Hell Nos and Headphones”). This week, there’s a new anti-in-crowd anthem on the block: “Uninvited,” an infectious electro-pop gem from Australian newcomer Mallrat (born Grace Shaw). ► stream “uninvited”

With a sparkling, silvery voice and colorful, wise-beyond-her-years lyrics reminiscent of Lorde, the 17-year-old calls the scene like she sees it: “Smiles are always toothless / But I run out of excuses / So I have to play excited / But I wish that I was uninvited.” However, the song’s best moment comes when Shaw nonchalantly repeats, “Get me off the list / I’ve got nothing on my wrist” atop a slinky synth beat. Here, you can almost feel the cool kids blasting the track at a party, or captioning a #squadgoals-esque Instagram post with the lyrics. Yes, “Uninvited” feels destined to take over the very world it renounces—but that’s all part of the fun.

And if “Uninvited” makes a splash like Shaw’s first Stateside single, “For Real,” did—in July, the breezy, finger-clicked cut hit number one on Hype Machine—the sky’s the limit when her Uninvited EP drops in on August 12.” – NOISEY
