Australian indie pop sensation Mallrat has just wrapped up a hugely successful tour of the country as part of the Laneway Festival and is now gearing up for a handful of exciting headline shows in May 2023. These shows are in celebration of her debut album, Butterfly Blue, which was released in May 2022 to critical acclaim. Mallrat will kick off her tour in Brisbane on May 12th, followed by Hindley Street Music Hall in Adelaide on May 13th, UNSW Roundhouse in Sydney on May 19th, and Forum Melbourne on May 20th. Cat & Calmell and Biblemami will be supporting her throughout the tour.
Mallrat's latest single, a collaboration with The Chainsmokers titled 'Wish On An Eyelash, Pt. 2', has been a massive hit, and the album's opening track, 'Wish On An Eyelash', has become the most popular song on Butterfly Blue. The album features other hit singles such as 'Rockstar', 'Your Love', 'Surprise Me' (feat. Azealia Banks), and 'Teeth'.
Mallrat's regional tour at the end of 2022 was a massive success, with shows in Darwin, Airlie Beach, Cairns, Townsville, Ballarat, and various other locations. She finished the year with a performance at Hobart UniBar.
Mallrat has also been making waves in the industry by calling out the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) for gender imbalance among the nominees for their 2022 awards. ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd responded to Mallrat, acknowledging the under-representation of non-male artists and vowing to do better. Mallrat's dedication to creating an inclusive and diverse music industry is just one of the many reasons why she's a rising star to keep an eye on.
