Sky Ferreira

I was first sold on the calibre of Sky Ferreira simply due to admirable people spruiking her in respected music media. But after a couple of quick listens to whatever topped youtube and spotify I thought it mostly sounded like redundant regurgitated heavily manufactured pop.
But I really liked the look....
Heavily influenced by... but doing a good job of it -  and who doesn't love the 90s, Mia Wallace, Lola Running and co?

So next time her name popped up I asked a close one what he thought. I learned she was first and foremost a model and he insinuated her and indie shoe gaze lead singer boyfriend were dirty junkies desperately wishing they were both Kurt Cobain. And I thought hmmm explains my love of her look and aesthetic - I should probably just stop the investigations now and move on while these kids self implode.

But then I somehow landed on this clip and listening to the song suddenly everything came clear. Catchy pop with a self destructive fuck it all mentality. Pop punk candy with a grunge aesthetic. I dunno, this song just slayed me today and now I have to rethink everything...

I've been hating everything, everything that could have been, could have been my anything, now...

I destroy ME

"If you’re ever lucky enough to find a girl who is a hopeless romantic with a dirty mind, you should hold onto that. Because she’ll be yours at two in the morning and at two in the afternoon the following day. She’ll kiss you where it hurts and until it hurts. And that’s important. Someone who not only knows how to turn you on but also knows how to treat you right is someone worth a little something… and a little more than usual."

"There were things I wanted to tell him. But I knew they would hurt him. So I buried them, and let them hurt me." 
— Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
