With shades of Mazzy Star and Violent Soho...

Brisbane native Mallrat has shared new single 'Rockstar' in full.

The track continues her ascent, with Mallrat's vocal - so full of heartache and longing - set against shoegaze inflections, and the subtle influence of Mazzy Star.

Unfurling against a reverb-dappled palette, 'Rockstar' has a downbeat feel, reminiscent in places of Lana Del Rey.

Written and recorded in her part-time home of Los Angeles, 'Rockstar' is a collaboration with songwriter/producer Tommy English, a neat blend of shoegaze and pop.

She comments: "I feel like 'Rockstar' reminds me of a mix between Lana Del Rey, Kacey Musgraves and Violent Soho. All through my teens (and obviously still) I loved the early Violent Soho albums self-titled and 'Hungry Ghost' – those two albums I’ve listened to a lot and I think that’s seeped its way into the track."

"A lot of the songs I’ve been writing lately have been me realising my power."
