Rising indie electro-pop outfit Magdalena Bay has released their new single “Killshot.” The hypnotic track about a torturous love story eases glimmers of eighties transmissions with an intimate vocal performance from singer Mica Tenenbaum. Listen to the track and watch a music video now below.
“‘Killshot’ is a song about unfulfilled yearning, about getting so caught up in romantic suspense that you feel your heart may burst,” shares the duo of Mica Tenenbaum (singer/songwriter) and Matthew Lewin (producer/songwriter). “We wanted the song to be as enveloping as an all-consuming romance that builds up to dreamy heights.”
“Killshot” (Luminelle Recordings) is the latest offering from Magdalena Bay following their recent singles “Good Intentions,” a glitchy dance track about the end of a relationship, and “Venice,” an indie-pop song encouraging listeners to live in the now as the end of the world closes in. Both tracks have recently been featured in various Spotify playlists including Indie Pop, HYPERPOP and All New Indie.
The Los Angeles-based, Miami-raised duo infuse a throwback spirit into 21st century cinematic pop as they gleefully keep their D.I.Y. edges intact. Under the influence of Carly Rae Jepsen, Charli XCX, and Art Angels from Grimes, Magdalena Bay, who’ve been making music together since high school, picked up a thread from their early prog band roots a la the “the eighties key changes” and developed a handcrafted sound and vision. Magdalena Bay has kept up a steady pace over the last few years via a series of original singles and videos, including their hit single “Neon,” which has generated over 2 million Spotify streams. Earning media praise from the blogosphere worldwide and early support from KCRW for their feel-good pop music, Magdalena Bay has accumulated more than 4 million total streams on Spotify.
