Capable of teaching a pop masterclass and drawing praise from the likes of V Magazine, MTV, NYLON, Earmilk, 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 skill to create their own handcrafted, occasionally peculiar, sound and vision that packages melancholic themes inside a high-gloss, otherworldly pop sound.
Check out the video for 2018 single “Venice” – the apocalyptic undertone of winter in LA encourages listeners to live in the now as the end of the world closes in. Taking inspiration from both Carly Rae Jepsen and Charli XCX, the playlist darlings 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.
