If you have been a regular on this site, you likely know Mallrat, an Australian making waves instead of riding them. Combining fresh, electronic elements with warm, acoustic elements and yearning verses, Mallrat is unafraid in her music.
"Charlie" is the third single from Grace Shaw, and exhibits why people cannot get enough of this girl. Her capacity to tell stories through song is extraordinary. Named after her dog, this song exudes a beautiful energy. Somewhat somber chords begin the track while Shaw's silky voice entrances you. Delicately placed sounds and delayed vocals slowly add some color to the track.
This song struck me because I can hear the honest and unfettered expression of love in it. It is wonderful to listen as a talented, young musician discovers the world while she begins to shape her musical identity.
