Mallrat Shares New Song ‘Teeth’ And Announces Debut Album

Mallrat has announced her debut album, Butterfly Blue, will arrive on Friday, 13th May via Dew Process. To coincide with the announcement, the singer has shared new single ‘Teeth’.

Following on from the Gangsta Pat-sampling ‘Your Love’ back in February along with last year’s dreamy ‘Rockstar’, the new track anchors Mallrat’s vocals with a rumbling bassline and ethereal synth pads before introducing buzzy, overdriven guitars. In terms of its mood, Mallrat – real name Grace Shaw – says it best: “I like to think that if ‘Teeth’ was out in 2004 it would be on the OC soundtrack.”

She continues: “In the song I describe a big, omnipresent ‘it’. When I wrote these lyrics I was playing with the idea that we talk about sex and prayer and violence and power with very similar language. I wanted to see if I could blur all of these things into one blurry ball of energy.”

Butterfly Blue will mark Shaw’s first full-length project as Mallrat, which actually seems kind of wild when you consider the creative evolution she’s demonstrated across her three EPs – 2016’s Uninvited, 2018’s In the Sky and 2019’s Driving Music. “I’ve always valued music that is interesting, beautiful and unpretentious,” she says. “Something timeless and not reactive. Butterfly Blue was made with that in mind. It’s a demonstration of not pretending to be anyone else.”
