Sean Massaro – “Surface”


A recent single from Los Angeles-based artist Sean Massaro, “Surface” touts an engaging, emotive alt-rock appeal with ample momentum. The “I keep the light on,” vocal drive glides into steadily escalating charm, with the “am I awake…” refrain concluding the production with satiating appeal. “Am I awake or only dreaming?” they continue into more expressive guitar pulses, furthering the nocturnal, reality-questioning lyrical fervency. A sturdy rock sound, with touches of throwback emo, compels on the catching “Surface.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2023’ Spotify playlist.
