Teenage alienation etched with unerring accuracy...

Bay Area teen mxmtoon has shared her heartbreaking new song 'prom dress'.

The Oakland songwriter matches adolescent alienation to a gift for beautiful melodies, with a string of Bandcamp releases demonstrating a vital, unique voice.

New single 'prom dress' is online now, a song that deals with disappointment, social anxiety, and the perils of being a teen in 2k19.

There's something heartrending and all-too-relatable about the narrative, with the Bay Area artist singing:

"I guess I thought that prom was gonna be fun, but now I'm sitting on the floor and all I want to do is run..."
