It’s hard not to lump Sky Ferreira in with the rest of the models often recognized on his Tumblr blog. She is indeed the perfect encapsulation of what a “scene girl” should look like: grunge-y bleached blond hair with peeking dark roots, bright red lipstick, wrapped up in a jean jacket. But Sky Ferreira’s (pronounced as such) latest EP hit the digital shelves yesterday and it’s pretty awesome. It’s got five full tracks featuring a plethora of sounds from a plethora of special friends–everyone from Jon Brion to Sherley Manson–not to mention Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) who helped Solange with her latest, “Losing You“.
The EP is a diverse collection of songs–Ferreira goes easily from teary-eyed acoustics (on “Sad Dream”) to rock reminiscent of Courtney Love and Garbage (on “Red Lips”, which Manson co-wrote, so it makes sense.) “Everything is Embarrassing”, produced by Dev Hynes, thumps away in the style of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know”, infusing Ferreira’s far-away vocals that continue to layer as the song progresses.
