"There's a lot of violence and frustration and boredom going on," Cimino adds.
"Fuck, I thought it was party music, man," Tierney chimes in, and the band bursts into another fit of laughter.

Maybe their direction will cross the border into genuine hyphy. Already back in the studio recording songs for another EP, the Mall aren't holding back anything: to them, it's all about having fun and making great music for their friends.
"It's totally replaced skateboarding for me," Cimino says. "I'm off work. I don't want to watch TV. I don't want to eat dinner. I get to hang out and play music with these guys." SFBG
