Glamourous lo-fi pop at it’s absolute finest. Big Yack! favourites Magdalena Bay come through with their first release of 2019 their anti-money disco jam ‘Money Lover’ complete with an amazing video to boot – Check it out below.
‘Money Lover’ is groovy and smooth, a real bop to get your ears around, there’s even a massive saxophone solo that completely cements the 80s and 90s influence that this track is drenched in. The production is sexy and seductive and lays a beautiful foundation for Mica’s gorgeous vocal to take centre stage once again. There is an element of fun with every Magdalena Bay release but there is also a serious songwriting ability that Mica and Matthew share and long may it continue.
Speaking on the track they state; “With Money Lover, we wanted to write an anthem for people who aren’t into lavish displays of wealth,” they explain. “There are so many songs that glorify being mega rich and we (unfortunately) don’t relate to that. So we made this fun anti-money disco jam. Narratively, it tells the story of a guy who tries to win Mica over with his daddy’s yacht and luxury vacation pics– but she’d never trade in her Birkenstocks for Balenciaga.”
