Citing Gwen Stefani and Grimes as influences, the L.A. duo’s heartfelt take on bubblegum is a sensitive sort of bombastic pop that wants you to be sensitive, too.

The production is so clean that I can sanitize my hands with these songs. A cute EP, It is fun hearing what a Grimes influence can actually sound like. Stay healthy; stay indoors!
Brilliant collection of pop tunes. Every track is such a grower. Really can't select a single fave
Nice collection of singles from 2019 and 2020 with a few new songs mixed in. In terms of new songs, "Story" is a JAM and the best track on the EP. They've yet to let me down. Hope an album is on the way soon.
Magdalena Bay's bubblegum sound is incredibly catchy and playful, a fact that's reflected in their music videos. Although they may not as super experimental as some of their listed influences (e.g. Charli XCX) they do a great job in melting just plain simple pop music from the last couple of decades.

Their music remains occasion for driving down Santa Monica's Ocean Ave or Miami Beach's Ocean Dr.
This EP had "good intentions," but it doesn't quite come out of the generic, and the very environment and production leave a feeling of being boring.
