Torment leads to serious consequences on Magic Bronson’s “Evil Plans”
Originally appeared on the 405, view archived article here.
There are serious explorations of bullying in media, but the most aptly dystopic snapshot of the teenage experience comes in the Netflix true crime parody series, American Vandal. The “filmmakers” on that program are high schoolers, which allows it to navigate the narrow and tumultuous alleys of youth culture, and what they uncover reverberates in real life. Without spoiling either season, I’ll just say that everyone has reason for resentment in their angsty lives, something Magic Bronson draws on in their new single.
