Bands to Watch #160: Sky Ferreira

By on Thursday, 4th February 2010 at 12:00 pm

It’s all about the young guns this 2010, with the likes of teenager Daisy Dares You pitching uber high on ‘ones to watch’ lists across the board. Today, we’d like to introduce a similarly small, soon-to-be-huge pop star in the form of 17 year old Sky Ferreira.

Hailing from California, despite her young age, Sky is already making massive waves. She signed to EMI last year, and is swiftly being hailed as a young Katy Perry in waiting. But, to be frank, I truly believe Miss. Ferreira has more depth to her than the I Kissed a Girl singer. With the dreamy electro distance of Ellie Goulding, mixed with the crunchy disco beats of Lady GaGa and the attitude-spilling punk of Daisy Dares You, oh, plus a pair of genuinely decent lungs (which Miss. Perry certainly lacks in my opinion), Sky’s eclectic music is pretty much set on appealing to a huge audience of ears.

Ferreira also seems to be down with a number of celebrities while she’s at it – her MySpace page boasting pictures of Sky alongside the likes of Taylor Swift and Will.I.Am. Oh and guess what, she even grew up with Michael Jackson (at least according to the anecdotes I’ve read in several interviews with Ferreira). On top of all that, there are even whispers of Sky having blagged a collaboration with the pop goddess that is Britney Spears – not bad for a 17 year old kid that hasn’t even released an album yet, huh?

Hey, I guess I’ll let her off for her, interesting, rendition of The Beatles’ ‘Happiness is a Warm Gun’ (unpleasingly mixed with Dr. Dre), because you know what, Ferreira’s spunky-pop pretty much makes up for it.

Isn’t she the sister of Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo? I saw it in his personal info on his Facebook page.
