Sky Ferreira

Saturday

Singer-songwriter Sky Ferreira is well-known for crafting her own unique combination of synthpop and indie rock. As a teenager, Ferreira uploaded videos online of herself singing songs she wrote, leading to her discovery by producers Bloodshy & Avant and ultimately a recording contract with Parlophone in 2009. Her first EP, As If!, which released in 2011, combined elements of dance music and electropop. Her second EP, Ghost from 2012, saw Ferreira shift to more stripped-down pop songs and featured the critically acclaimed track “Everything Is Embarrassing,” which she composed with Dev Hynes of Blood Orange.

Ferreira’s debut studio album Night Time, My Time was released in 2013 and marked a departure from her former style, incorporating more experimental indie rock with electropop elements. She was exposed to a mainstream audience after serving as the opening act for Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz Tour in 2014. While her earlier work incorporated elements of dance-pop, her more recent projects incorporate acoustic, new wave and indie rock elements.
