Sky Ferreira is really gaining momentum at the moment. After the release of her EP Ghost back in October, She seems to be everywhere I turn. Pitchfork reviewed her as; “It’s official: she’s the year’s next big latent potential”.
So reading up about this girl, I find out that she had a bit of a fail start in the industry but by cleverly using the contacts she had made and nurturing her look, she’s made it back for another stab at it – and I believe this time around she’ll make it. She’s obviously a very clued up girl and like many young singers these days isn’t just marketing herself as a singer. She appears on all social media platforms and is continuously becoming more and more involved in the fashion scene, recently landing the model/muse role with Saint Laurent.
I absolutely fell in love with her I saw the Saint Laurent Pre-Fall13 collection shoot shot by Hedi Slimane. Her girly, grundgy style is so up my street and she brings this edge to the Saint Laurent Collection.
The songs on her EP are all a complete mix of music styles, but apparently this was the aim – she wanted the EP to be a sort of collection of songs – I love this idea; rather than having a message to present – her EP is about her sense of musical taste, showing her versatility. There’s more to come from this girl and I bet she’s going to be hot topic this year.
She is currently touring the UK and the USA; for dates and venue information click here.
