Sky Ferreira - Ghost EP
Record Label: Capitol
Release Date: October 16, 2012
Sky Ferreira is an American singer/model/actress who has been working on finding her sound over the past few years since being discovered by Swedish production duo Bloodshy & Avant on MySpace. Ghost is her second EP and the lead up to her upcoming debut album in 2013.
How is it?
Ever since abandoning her electro pop sound (although it is still present on this EP in bits), Ferreira has stated that she wants to pursue a New Wave sound (a la Blondie, one of her idols), which she experiments with songs like "Everything Is Embarrassing." The track "Sad Dream" showcases her beautiful vocals on a track that would be perfect for a coffee house performance. Then, out of nowhere, "Lost In My Bedroom" comes out banging with a dance beat that sounds like the type of songs they play at the clothing Express. It's not a bad song, but it just does a complete 180 from the opener.
It's easy to see that Sky Ferreira is still coming into her own and trying to find her place in music. I believe she would have more success in the electro pop scene but if she sticks to her word, we should hear a more New Wave approach on her upcoming album some time in 2013.
