Rising indie-pop prodigies Magdalena Bay have released their new single “Oh Hell” via Luminelle Recordings, the next in their hot streak of Hype Machine #1’s following pop gems “Killshot” and “Good Intentions” which have been quickly adding to their more than 5 million streams. On January 15, Magdalena Bay will headline Elsewhere in Brooklyn, NY (You can buy tickets HERE) with an upbeat and eye-popping set full of fan favorites including single “Venice.” “‘Oh Hell’ is about young love and how misguided it can be,” says Mica on the inspiration behind the track. “My first relationship experiences growing up were super toxic, but I went along with them because of a vague notion that love is supposed to be dark and complicated. We wrote quite creepy and dark lyrics that work against the light, dreamy airiness of the song.”
Capable of teaching a pop masterclass and drawing praise from the likes of V Magazine, MTV, Earmilk, KCRW, Clash, Gorilla Vs. Bear, 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.
