about

TLDR: No femme is an island.

In our youth, the go-to “public” space for our parents to drop us off for an afternoon was THE MALL. We could have a taste of independence, they could feel safe knowing we were under the watchful eye of mall security. Kind of like the tween equivalent of the little fenced in baby playpen from Rugrats. Malls, which can be traced back to Victorian times long before their 80’s MOMENT, have historically been designed for women, a place to deposit us for safekeeping and a permissible place to spend our allowance. It’s also where swathes of 90s femmes had their first dates, first sexual experiences and committed their first crimes. Now that we’ve migrated from Southern California to London, the mall feels like a slice of home, like a portal in space & time. We are anarchists - and we are also SoCal femmes to the bone. Our love for the mall is as complicated as it is fierce - so we decided to say it with a song. “This mall is your land, this mall is my land, no femme is a fashion island!”

lyrics

Pull off the freeway, RAV4
Sweet spot! Parking lot, cherry floor
It’s what we’ve got, our hot deal
I’m a cowgirl in a Wild Westfield
Ah Ah Ah Ahhh!

Breeze in on an air con rush
Rugrats at ease, grab a slush & gush
Who are they? No way!
That’s hot, second thought, maybe not?!
Ah Ah Ah Ahhh!

You wanna shake-up? Lets try some make-up!
Lipstick stains on the back of my hand
Been here before know the lay of this land
I may be stranded, but we rebranded
This mall is your land, this mall is my land
No femme is a FASHION ISLAND!

It’s what we’ve got, it’s our hot deal
I’m just a girl in a Wild Wild Westfield
It’s space we take up, Oooo Ooo in our make-up
No femme is an island!

At the mall,
Where the samples are free like you & me
At the mall,
Confident & Clueless in suburban sprawl
At the mall,
Dressing room dreams are reality
At the mall,
Coming at the world like a cannonball!

At the fountain like a work of art
Teenage garbage, can’t tear us apart
Fling a thong, that’s our song
It’s about time for our arrival...

It’s what we’ve got, it’s our hot deal
I’m just a girl in a Wild Wild Westfield,
It’s space we take up, Oooo Ooo in our make-up
No femme is an island!

MONTAGE! + ~ Instrumental~

At the mall,
Where the samples are free like you & me
At the mall,
Confident & Clueless in suburban sprawl
At the mall,
Dressing room dreams are reality
At the mall,
Coming at the world like a cannonball!
