Kassi Ashton’s “Pretty Shiny Things” takes us to a place. Kassi’s smooth and sultry voice paired with real life no bullshit lyrics will give you all the goosebumps. The stripped-down acoustic sound of the song definitely makes you stop in your tracks and listen. The song’s vibe is reminiscent of older Kacey Musgraves and Miranda Lambert.
As women, we can all feel like there are huge demands put on our physical appearances. Just stay pretty and keep your mouth shut. Push down your feelings/emotions and just craft a perfect appearance on the outside. Kassi showcases this standard with lyrics about a mother who is focused on outward appearances and less about what’s happening on the inside.
Kassi Ashton is such a badass female artist and we can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us because Lord knows we’ve loved everything she’s put out so far. This track along with “Taxidermy” and “Violins.”
