Following a string of singles and EPs, Los Angeles pop duo Magdalena Bay, aka Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin, have announced their debut LP, Mercurial World, due out October 8 via Luminelle. "We spend all of our time together, and in some ways Mercurial World is about that particular sense of madness in containment," Lewin wrote in a statement to The FADER. "We live together and make art together; this immerses you in our creative, insular universe.”"

They've shared the album's lead single, "Chaeri," a sparkling track that's a little hyperpop and a little chiptune, and you can watch the video below. The song "muses on mental health, friendship, loneliness and control," the band say. "It’s about the walls we put up and the walls we should tear down for the sake of authentic connection, and Mica’s own personal difficulties with that. We tried taking these themes and elevating them to build a big, dark world with unsettling undertones."

Magdalena Bay have also announced some tour dates. They're playing Levitation Fest and touring with George Clanton throughout October (including a sold-out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 15). They've also announced headlining dates in NYC (October 13 at Elsewhere Zone One) and Los Angeles (October 8 at El Cid). See all dates below.
