Magdalena Bay (Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin) are really on a roll right now. Having wowed us with August’s Venice and then the reflective but sublime Good Intentions, they hit a hat trick with the delirious disco-pop of Killshot.
If you’re a fan of disco-era Kylie and the glossy RNB of TLC then you will love Killshot. There’s a sophisticated and playful sensuality to the song, in large part due to Tenenbaum’s sultry vocal performance. But the arrangement is more than a match for it, euphoric space disco tussling with soulful beats a funky bass line in a playful, passionate embrace.
The duo had this to say about the song: “Killshot’s a song about unfulfilled yearning, about getting so caught up in romantic suspense that you feel your heart may burst. We wanted the song to be enveloping like an all-consuming romance that builds up to dreamy heights.”
