The different characters and backgrounds of the three core members make up the unique ‘global roots sound’ of Mala Vita. Their origins (Italy, Bosnia and Serbia) play an important role in that sound, though the band focuses its song writing mainly on quality rock songs which literally blur musical boundaries, in the spirit of The Clash’s 'London Calling'.
'So Far So Good' has been recorded by Los Angeles producer Mario Caldato Jr. who is famous for his work with the Beastie Boys, Beck and Jack Johnson. After hearing the first demos for the new album Caldato was instantly excited about a collaboration with the band. He also mixed all the tracks on 'So Far So Good' at his studio in Los Angeles, which gives the album the warm and organic sound that is so characteristic of his work.
'So Far So Good': it is an expression that resounds both hope and cynicism and is the motto of anyone who lives from day to day. Dreams of the future are a privilege for the lucky few and millions of people cherish the hope that the next day may offer some improvement…'So Far So Good'.
