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, Mercurial World, later this week.

Ahead of this week’s album release, Magdalena Bay share one last preview of the record in the form of “Hysterical Us.” “’Hysterical Us’ is about our anxieties, paranoias and existential musings,” the band explains. Of the video, which was made in New Orleans, the band continues, “We loved being able to interpret all these heavy questions through the colorful world of MILAGROS Collective.”

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.

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.

June 30th, 2021

Today Los Angeles-based electro indie-pop duo Magdalena Bay—a.k.a. Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin—announce their long-awaited debut album. 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.

“We spend all of our time together, and in some ways Mercurial World is about that particular sense of madness in containment,” Lewin says. “We live together and make art together; this immerses you in our creative, insular universe.” The result is Mercurial World, a ridiculously good and otherworldly project that is as much musical as it is an experiment in pop persona and visual aesthetics.

To celebrate the announcement of Mercurial World, Magdalena Bay share the album’s first single “Chaeri” alongside its music video. “Chaeri muses on mental health, friendship, loneliness and control. It’s about the walls we put up and the walls we should tear down for the sake of authentic connection, and Mica’s own personal difficulties with that,” the band explains of the track that finds Mica pleading for forgiveness while a soundscape so vast and thunderous threatens to consume her. “We tried taking these themes and elevating them to build a big, dark world with unsettling undertones.”
