In an interview with Rolling Stone Australia MAALA touched on his love for pop music and how he combines it with an indie mentality:
"I have all these influences that are drastically pop, but I think in the end it's sort of this weird mix, that kind of indie world vs. that shiny pop thing. But the pop elements that I like is that very to the point melodies and broadly speaking in that format, I like knowing when the chorus is going to hit. It kind of helps to feel the music a little more. That is important right in this album."
