Acclaimed duo Magdalena Bay unveils the video for recent track ‘Death & Romance’ today directed by Amanda Kramer. The duo shared their enthusiasm, stating, “Death & Romance feels complete now. Can’t wait to share the rest of the story with you,” –watch it HERE.

 

 

Released at the end of May marking the band’s first release on Mom+Pop Music, ‘Death & Romance was praised as “kaleidoscopic” by Vulture, while PAPER commended the duo for another “glassy, sprawling prog-pop odyssey that builds from a tightly wound jam into something seemingly designed to hit the back walls of stadiums.”

 

Aside from last year’s EP mini mix vol. 3, ‘Death & Romance’ marks Magdalena’s Bay first official new music since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Mercurial World in 2021. Vulture praised the album as “one of 2021’s best pop statements” while Pitchfork celebrated the duo’s “magic power” of sounding “like whatever you grew up with, whenever that was,” and PopMatters commended the album for “providing a blueprint for a new generation of electronic pop.”

 

Magdalena Bay is the Los Angeles by way of Miami duo consisting of Mica Tenenbaum(vocals, songwriter) and Matthew Lewin (producer, songwriter). The two first met at an after-school music program in Miami where they grew up, bonding over shared musical influences and eventually starting a prog rock band Tabula Rasa. That band broke up, but when Tenenbaum and Lewin crossed paths again in college, they reconnected with the goal of making something closer to pop music that blends retro and futuristic elements under the moniker Magdalena Bay. They released a series of EPs leading up to their critically acclaimed debut album Mercurial World in 2021 and went on to sell out their first headlining tour, play numerous festivals around the world— including Coachella in 2023, tour with Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek, Flume and collaborate with Lil Yachty, JIHYO, Blu DeTiger and more.
