WHET Sky Ferreira?

She was sort of an "it" girl for a minute in the early 2010s, but it's pretty much been crickets since her debut album was released in 2013. I remember there was a bit of drama when her record came out because she had recently been arrested along with her boyfriend for drug possession—that obviously wasn't great publicity, but I thought the album was pretty good. It had a unique retro pop/indie rock sound and it was different from what her peers were putting out at the time.

I know she's been in a few movies here and there, but her career has pretty much stalled for almost a decade now. She put out a single track in 2019 that I thought was quite good, but that's it. I kind of miss her.

Never heard of her. Whatever happened to her mother, America?

She's stuck in a holding pattern. Her stans blame her label. But, really, she's hanging on to potential. If she never releases another album, she can avoid failure.

The title track from her album (obviously Twin Peaks-influenced) was very creepy

I saw her in TP: The Return, & had to Google her as I had no idea who she is, where she came from before this, or where she went after. She played a dirty, grungy character.

She’s a crackhead and I doubt she will ever release another album. Her first was one of my favorites but I think she’s just dumb.

I was also wondering about her recently. She had a great single back in 2012 or 2013, “Everything is Embarrasing”, produced by Devonte Hayes a.k.a. Blood Orange. It had fresh sound and has been imitated by many. I’ve heard rumors that Ferreira loved opiates a bit too much, but what happened to Blood Orange?

He does soundtracks.

R6 he does a lot of writing and production for and features on other artist’s tracks.

This was the most recent I heard.

His last album was in 2019.

I’ve seen him live several times and he’s a brilliant musician but he also comes across as quite shy and awkward onstage. This is just my guess, but he seams to not enjoy the spotlight being on him.

I saw Skye once also. She was super awkward. I couldn’t tell if it was shyness or she was on something.

I still listen to Everything Is Embarrassing on a regular basis.

R6 she performed it live with him in 2013 at the Pitchfork festival—she was gacked out of her mind, either on molly or coke, was crying onstage, grinding her jaw back and forth—she doesn't sound very good in the clips I've seen from it either. She played that festival again a couple of years ago and was sober, and sounded much better. I like her voice.

She is very pretty, but always looks so dour and unhappy. Per Wikipedia, she was raised by her grandma (who was Michael Jackson's longtime personal hairdresser??!), which tells me her parents were absent and had issues, probably with drugs. She also says she was raped as an adolescent (and not by MJ). I think she has problems that run deep.
