Mallrat’s top five tunes to ring in the Australian summer
Summer is just around the corner and with that, comes the epic Australian music festival season. MALLRAT is one of the country’s best upcoming producers and she’s about to kill the festival season with her smooth production skills.
Mallrat will be performing at The Plot festival held in Sydney’s Parramatta Park and she’ll also no doubt be playing a few other shows throughout the warmer months.
We asked Mallrat if she could create a little playlist for us that had all of her favourite summer tunes, so we could see how she likes to kick off summer and here’s what she sent:
TKAY Maidza ‘Follow Me’
“Tkay is Australia’s Festival Queen. Follow Me is my current fave song from her new album, the bridge is especially mad. It makes me feel everything all at once.”
Allday ‘Send Nudes’
“Don’t let the track name freak you out, this song is incredible. I was lucky to hear it before it came out, and straight away I was reminded of Tourism Queensland ads, where healthy young people jump into rainforest waterfalls. I can’t wait for everyone to hear Allday’s new music, it’s beautiful beautiful beautiful art.”
E^ST ‘Screen Time’
“My favourite E^ST song, slept on dot com. “
Anderson Paak ‘The Season I Carry Me’
“I’m late to the Anderson Paak party but I’m just happy to be here! This man will probably change the world. Favourite lines: “Ain’t shit change but the bank statements,” and “Fuck fame, that killed all my favourite entertainers”.”
Kid Cudi ‘Surfin’ ft. Pharrell
“This song will remind you that you are a champion PLUS the music video features my future boyfriends, A$AP Rocky and Jaden Smith.”
