Rising indie-pop savants Magdalena Bay have announced the upcoming release of A Little Rhythm and a Wicked Feeling, their new EP out March 13 via Luminelle Recordings, alongside their brand-new single “How to Get Physical.” The infectious track wrestles with that awkward feeling of not being comfortable enough in your own skin to let go and dance and follows their recently-released single “Oh Hell” and back-to-back Hype Machine #1s “Killshot” and “Good Intentions.” Capping off their recent hot streak of singles, which are quickly adding to their more than 5 million streams, their A Little Rhythm and a Wicked Feeling EP will include fan favorites including single “Venice.” Giving the world a taste of the upcoming project, Magdalena Bay will headline Elsewhere in Brooklyn, NY (you can purchase tickets HERE) with an upbeat and eye-popping set on January 15. “Neither of us are particularly dance-oriented so we wanted to write an anthem for people who feel awkward when they dance,” says Magdalena Bay on the new track. “Ironically, this is probably our ‘danciest’ song to date.”
Capable of teaching a pop masterclass and drawing praise from the likes of V Magazine, MTV, NYLON, Earmilk, KCRW, Clash, Gorilla Vs. Bear, Ladygunn, Substream, Atwood, The Line of Best Fit, and more, Magdalena Bay seamlessly stitch together old and new, breathing new life into the neon late-night and offbeat cinematic nostalgia of the eighties with savant-like songwriting skill to create their own handcrafted sound and vision that packages melancholic themes inside a high-gloss, otherworldly pop. Taking inspiration from both Carly Rae Jepsen and Charli XCX, Magdalena Bay’s Mica Tenenbaum (singer/songwriter) and Matthew Lewin (producer/songwriter) have been making music together since high school and are a regular staple on Spotify’s official Indie Pop, All New Indie, and HYPERPOP lists.
