May 13 street date. Mallrat's prized pop songwriting has become a beacon the music industry eagerly follows, and on her debut album "Butterfly Blue", she embodies the spirit of its titular creature - but without the delicacy that keeps you at a distance. Over a dozen clever and open-hearted tracks, Mallrat (aka Grace Shaw) draws you in close and shows you the world through her wide, hopeful eyes. Shaw was just a kid when her parents brought home the CD that would inspire her first album, 17 years later. "I remember when Mum and Dad got The OC soundtrack. When I heard "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap for the first time, I was so confused and fascinated by it, thinking, ‘How can a voice do that?’." On "Butterfly Blue", a lifetime of collecting influences across genres - from folk, country, and Florence + The Machine to the moody noir pop of Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks' bold and charismatic hip-hop - come together into one vast and tender debut, a compilation of Shaw's emotions as eclectic and cohesive as those soundtracks she pored over.
