Hot on heels after their latest EP ‘Melody & Silence‘, The Knocks & Mallrat Unveils a New Brilliant Single “R U HIGH”
The Knocks’ signature captivating production style paired with Mallrat’s solemn, ethereal vocals makes “R U HIGH” so addicting it’s impossible to listen just once.
Ben from The Knocks shares, “I’ve been a fan of Mallrat since I heard her early stuff & we finally met before I went to her first show in NYC”, said Ben from The Knocks. “We talked about doing a song together and eventually our schedules aligned while we were both in California and got together for a couple of days. Her sense of melody and lyric writing is really special and in a lane of its own. All her work is honest and personal, which is hard to find these days.“
Both masters of their crafts, this collaboration is nothing short of a perfect match – and only fitting that they’ve created a song that’s best described as the sonic equivalent of dancing under a disco ball at the club.
Mallrat says, “I loved making this song with The Knocks,” said Mallrat. “They rented a big airbnb in the Hollywood hills and we made this song together in the living room about a year ago. I’ve spent a lot of time between now and then dancing around my kitchen to the demo and I’m glad that it’s finally out in the world.”
The duo has collaborated with some of music’s biggest names [Carly Rae Jepsen, X Ambassadors, Big Boi] and toured around the world with music heavyweights including The 1975, Justin Bieber, and Ellie Goulding. Their hit single, “Ride or Die” featuring Foster the People reached #11 on the alt radio charts and landed them a live performance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
Mallrat’s profile continues to build with the latest track “Charlie.” At home, the track placed at #3 on Triple J Hottest 100, just behind Billie Eilish and Flume. In the states, she made her late-night TV performance debut on the Late Late Show With James Corden, while in the UK, winning “Best Australian Solo Act” at this year’s NME Awards. She’s toured alongside Maggie Rogers, King Princess and Post Malone and recently headlined sold-out tours across Australia, the UK, Europe and the US.
