When she first popped up years ago, Sky Ferreira never seemed to find a comfortable stride. She’s got more edge than your typical mainstream pop star, but mastering the right balance between catchy pop and that much-needed edge is a tricky act. She’s back, and she says of this Dev Hynes-produced track, “It’s a COLLABORATION! Not my new sound (whatever that means)… It’s obviously Blood Orange influenced.” So this may not be some new defining piece to construct pre-judgments of her upcoming Ghost EP (out October 2nd), but she’s definitely onto something here.
