Magdalena Bay announce their debut LP Mercurial World

Magdalena Bay, includes Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin. The duo have announced their debut album Mercurial World will be released on October 8, via Luminelle. The full-length was Entirely written, produced, performed, mixed and mastered by Tenenbaum and Lewin, and is the follow-up to their EP, A Little Rhythm and a Wicked Feeling. With their tours with Kero Kero Bonito and Yumi Zouma canceled.

Over the past 18 months, the band used social platforms to organically build a dedicated following and dispatch their music in hypnotic, ephemeral bursts that met the moment. “We spend all of our time together, and in some ways Mercurial World is about that particular sense of madness in containment,” Lewin says. “We live together and make art together; this immerses you in our creative, insular universe.” The result is Mercurial World, a ridiculously good and otherworldly project that is as much musical as it is an experiment in pop persona and visual aesthetics.”

Along with the news of Mercurial World, Magdalena Bay share the album’s first single “Chaeri” alongside its music video. “Chaeri muses on mental health, friendship, loneliness and control. It’s about the walls we put up and the walls we should tear down for the sake of authentic connection, and Mica’s own personal difficulties with that,” the band explains of the track that finds Mica pleading for forgiveness while a soundscape so vast and thunderous threatens to consume her. “We tried taking these themes and elevating them to build a big, dark world with unsettling undertones.”
