Magdalena Bay

Los Angeles-based electro indie-pop duo Magdalena Bay—a.k.a. Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin—recently announced a deluxe reissue of their breakout debut album Mercurial World, out September 23 on Luminelle Recordings. Today they share another new track entitled “Unconditional,” alongside an amazing, self-directed video.

“We think of ‘Unconditional’ as ‘Secrets’ weird little cousin. Just like ‘All You Do,’ we loved it when we made it but it didn’t quite fit the flow of Mercurial World,” explain Magdalena Bay. As for the accompanying visual, they say: “This video is our dream birthday party, and you’re all invited.”

Magdalena Bay recently announced a Fall headline tour throughout the U.S., which kicks off later this month.

Los Angeles-based electro indie-pop duo Magdalena Bay—a.k.a. Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin—will release their long-awaited debut album next month, and today they share another taste of the forthcoming record. The band says the dramatic “You Lose!” is about trying to be a musician and feeling like time for success is always running out. It’s definitely melodramatic, describing ourselves as aging and nearing death, but sometimes it really feels that way.”

Entirely written, produced, performed, mixed and mastered by Magdalena Bay, Mercurial World will be released on October 8 via Luminelle.

Québécois artist MUNYA – a.k.a producer, singer, songwriter and performer Josie Boivin – will release her debut album, Voyage to Mars, on November 5th via Luminelle Recordings. Following her masterful EP trilogy that was released in its entirety in 2019, MUNYA started work on her debut album. With a background in opera and jazz, MUNYA has always had two big dreams: to be a musician, and…to go to Mars. “I love space. I love aliens. I love thinking that we’re not alone in this big strange universe,” she says. “Those things give me hope.” That hope led to Voyage To Mars, named for Georges Méliès’ classic silent film Le Voyage dans la Lune. Filled with songs that feel beamed in from another world and suffused with an otherworldly light, this record was written, produced and recorded by Boivin.

To celebrate the announcement of Voyage To Mars, MUNYA shares lead single “Cocoa Beach” today. The lilting song with palm-muted guitars and a driving funk beat is named for the town fifteen miles from the John F. Kennedy Space Center, and Boivin explains, “Cocoa Beach is a song about being fearless, about finding your inner force and embracing failure as your path to happiness. It’s about pushing yourself over your limits and accomplishing the impossible through sheer force of will. It takes courage, dedication and many failures to reach your dreams…and that is the origin story of MUNYA.” The new music video for “Cocoa Beach” is a direct followup to her last French single “Pour Toi,” a song that found her speaking to someone far away.

Los Angeles-based electro indie-pop duo Magdalena Bay—a.k.a. Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin—recently announced their long-awaited debut album, and today they share a new song and video off of the forthcoming record. Following the first single “Chaeri” is the funky, bass-heavy “Secrets (Your Fire),” which tips its hat to the 90s. Where the music video accompanying “Chaeri” showcased a new frontier for Magdalena Bay, with cinematic visuals that retain the surreal mood and VHS-obsessed nature of their DIY videos to date, the video for “Secrets (Your Fire) seamlessly blends the two worlds. “Secrets is about interconnectivity, privacy, and digital anxiety,” the band explains. “It’s also about a need to keep sharing, to keep giving up more and more of yourself to faceless strangers in the hopes of making friends or fans.”

Entirely written, produced, performed, mixed and mastered by Magdalena Bay, Mercurial World will be released on October 8 via Luminelle. This album comes as a follow-up to their latest EP, A Little Rhythm and a Wicked Feeling, which was released on North America’s COVID-19 Eve, March 13, 2020.
