Magdalena Bay Share Share Sci-Fi Themed Video for “Death & Romance”

Additional Dates for The Imaginal Mystery Tour Announced

Jun 18, 2024 Bookmark and Share

Los Angeles-based electro-pop duo Magdalena Bay (aka Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin) recently shared a new song, “Death & Romance,” and now the track has a video. Befitting the subject of the song, the video is sci-fi themed and features UFOs, portals, and doppelgangers. Amanda Kramer directed the video and the video version of the song is actually almost three minutes longer than the single version the band shared in May. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

The band collectively had this to say about the video in a press release: “‘Death & Romance’ feels complete now. Can’t wait to share the rest of the story with you.”

“Death & Romance” was one of our Songs of the Week.

Magdalena Bay previously announced The Imaginal Mystery Tour, a U.S. tour this fall. Two extra dates have since been added to the tour, in Chicago and Los Angeles.

The band collectively had this to say about the song in a previous press release: “Imagine rain pouring, streetlights glowing. You sit at home and wait for your alien boyfriend to pick you up in his UFO…but this time, he’s not coming.”

“Death & Romance” follows 2023’s mini mix vol. 3, a surprise-released a seven-song EP and an accompanying short film that featured videos for every song. The EP’s “Wandering Eyes” made our Songs of the Week list.

In 2021, Magdalena Bay released their debut album, Mercurial World, which was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2021 and several songs from the album were featured on our Top 130 Songs of 2021 list. Then in 2022 they released a deluxe edition of the album that included several bonus tracks and remixes incorporated into the main tracklist of the original album, presenting a completely different listening experience.
