Magic Bronson: “I Don’t Know Man”

October 1, 2020 | Writer: Eric Reyes

Typically when I go over a new indie track, it’s a unique YET predictable track that could be at home either in a Wes Anderson-esque student film or a YA-Novel adaptation trying to add a little flavor to their soundtrack. “I Don’t Know Man” defies either of those categorizations. 

Unorthodoxy is probably a good word to describe the overall stylings of Magic Bronson. Incorporating digital distortion, growling bass guitar, various percussion instruments, metallic surfaces, and leftover 80’s prog-rock synth keyboard samplers, Magic Bronson offers up a wonderfully odd track. A steady spiral into chaos, like tripping down basement stairs to find a drunken party at the bottom step is possibly the best visualization I can give to this song’s vibe. The lyrics here are likewise inspired, crafting a patchwork of outlandish scenarios and images to crowd out the focus of the core philosophical answer to many of life’s questions, “I Don’t Know Man.”

If you have friends that ask you, ‘When you gonna make it?” toss on this track, lock the door, burn the house down. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life, but you definitely need this song.
