I'm still caught up in the rapture of Sky Ferreria's moody valley girl anthem "Everything Is Embarrassing", so I had to take a pause to take in this recent black and white visual of Ferreria doing the whole 'me and my band in the studio' bit. Treated in this viewing is a raw reading of "Embarrassing", sounding just as a exciting as the original Dev Hynes production, but also of exclamation note is "You're Not The One", a brand new slice from her that is poised to be present on her debut album next year. From the sound of things, the latter sounds like its got BIG anthem thing going on a la Florence & The Machine or what Ellie Goulding displayed on Halycon. Me likey. Sky's got some set of pipes on her as she literally claws through these numbers.
I wasn't all that thrilled with her latest EP, Ghost, as I was (foolishly) expecting similar grooves a la "Embarrassing" (though having Garbage's Shirley Manson pen a number gets a gold star), but I was impressed to hear that Miss Ferreria is testing new things out, seeing what works for her, and is making pop music her own work of art.
Keeping a watchful eye on her, that's for sure.
