Synths, vibes, and all the rage: Magdalena Bay is the future of pop music. A truly iconic experience, it had us on the hook Honey Poppers! From the sounds of ‘You Lose!’ to the release of the smash-hit Mercurial World back in October, we at THP were lucky enough to catch Magdalena Bay’s sold-out set at Elsewhere to an adoring crowd here for the ride.

Magdalena Bay consists of duo Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin. Based out of LA, the two have taken their high-energy spunky sound and made a name for themselves. Shortly after the debut of Mercurial World the two hit the road supporting vaporwave king George Clanton on his headlining tour. And now the synthpop faves are slated to hit the road supporting hyperpop queen, Charli XCX this spring.
We at THP were fortunate enough to catch this train off their sold-out headlining tour. And let us tell you, Honey Poppers, these are tracks we need to turn up, listen to, and sing (and obviously dance?!) along to.
And here’s the true insider tip: if you were vibing with hit ‘Airplanes’ released back in 2020, trust us, Magdalena Bay is a must-listen on your next playlist.
The release of Mercurial World has us seeing Magdalena Bay embrace their style: a diverse fusion of upbeat instrumentation and a swoon-worthy melody. It made for a night with songs still stuck in our head and we wish you could’ve been there Honey Poppers!
To show this incredibly talented group even more love, we’ve listed our go-to tracks here. Some we even got to hear live, too! And since we’re feeling it, that means you are going to as well.
