Magdalena Bay – Venice

Venice Art

LA duo Magdalena Bay follow up the hottest 12 minutes of the summer with a shimmering, apocalyptic summer bop that's easily one of our favorite tracks of 2019. Mag Bay's proper new single "Venice", officially out today on Luminelle, is the duo's way of "coping with the ever-increasing ways that the world may end", and it's an absolutely glorious way to go out when global warming finally gets us all or the Russians burn this shit to the ground, whichever comes first...

Hana Vu – At the Party

unnamed

LA's Hana Vu makes her triumphant return with the throbbing opening track from her stellar new double EP Nicole Kidman / Anne Hathaway, coming October 25th on Luminelle.

Maraschino – True Lover

MARASCHINO

L.A.'s Piper Kaplan -- formerly of the great Pearl Harbour / Puro Instinct -- shares the infectious first single from her long-awaited new solo project Maraschino. Produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, Amen Dunes, et al.), "True Lover" is a bright and glittery synth-pop banger / break-up anthem that feels like an effervescent rush of '80s nostalgia, and has us very psyched to hear more from Pipes' new project. Listen below, and help support Maraschino's first-ever North American tour opening for Drugdealer here.
