Los Angeles-based pop duo Magdalena Bay's new project, Mini Mix Vol. 2, on limited edition 10" etched baby blue vinyl. The mix features genre-exploring short songs that Mica and Matt record and release on the fly, including the singles “Live 4 Ever,” “Woww,” “Hideaway,” and “Sky2Fall.” Mini Mix Vol. 2 follows the release of A Little Rhythm and a Wicked Feeling earlier this year, which received praise from Pitchfork and i-D, among others.
Of their latest Mini Mix, Magdalena Bay say, “The Minis are a way for us to mess around with different sounds, style and genres. We love them to be eclectic, and even though each song is different from the next we see the mix as one 12 minute journey through the Magdalena Bay universe."
The Miami natives first crossed paths in an after-school music program in high school. They founded a prog rock group together, which eventually disbanded when its members went off to their respective colleges. After a year-long hiatus, Mica and Matt reconnected and began releasing new music as Magdalena Bay. Upon completing their degrees, the two regrouped and moved out to Los Angeles together.
Magdalena Bay is a pop duo comprised of Mica Tenenbaum (songwriting, vocals) & Matthew Lewin (songwriting, vocals, production). The Miami-born, LA-based duo began writing together in high school and started making pop as Magdalena Bay in 2016. Inspiration is drawn from retro pop songwriting and contemporary production-- the result has been a collection of upbeat and synth-driven singles. The band bring retro aesthetics into the contemporary era, mixing 80’s and 90’s music- making and style with contemporary songwriting & production. From Madonna and Britney to Grimes, Charli XCX and beyond, they’re influenced by artists who make fun and clever pop; pop of the past, and pop of the future. Tired of hearing sad songs on the radio, Magdalena Bay is here for fun.
