“What We’re Sold” is another success from Marshall Fassino, marking the fifth and final single from his upcoming album, Ways I Used To Feel, out this fall. Impressing last month with the prior single “Promised Land,” Fassino touts another strong rock production with “What We’re Sold,” firmly cementing the upcoming full-length as one we’re anticipating.
Warming guitar twangs and a steady bass-laden pulse leads into vocals that admit “doing time for all my secrets.” Aspirations for moral living drive into the infectious “that’s the way it goes,” lamenting, continuing that “the world ain’t always what we’re sold,” — a stark though real commentary that’s accompanied sharply by melodic guitars, flourishing with added ardency during the three-minute turn. “What We’re Sold” is another hooky, thematically poignant success from Fassino.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2023’ Spotify playlist.
