The LA-based duo of Mica Tennenbaum and Matthew Lewin don’t make ordinary pop music. Since the group released their first EP in 2019, they have developed an intricate, futuristic style, owing as much to Gwen Stefani and Madonna as they do to Radiohead. In 2021, Magdalena Bay released their debut album, titled Mercurial World. The album was a critical success, earning praise from major music publications as well as a few viral videos on Tik Tok. Following the success of the album, the band completed their first headlining tour and played shows with similarly inventive artists like Porter Robinson and fellow Artists Den alum Charli XCX.
