Sky Ferreira's Sad Dream Makes Us Anything But
Oct 30, 2012 - by Emily Draznik
Sky Ferreira is a youthful staple at New York and Los Angeles fashion events. Fashion's 20-year old darling was seen photographed front row at many shows during last season's New York Fashion Week, so it's hard to think she completed an EP during all of this. Thankfully, she has released another single from said EP Ghost and the video for Sad Dream is a light folk-pop ballad that had us smiling despite the title.
Sky Ferreira has been a presence in the music industry for awhile now. Starting at just age 17, the singer is coming off of the release of her second EP. Ghost is a compilation of 5 tracks featuring writers like Devonté Hynes and Blake Mills. Following the release of Red Lips and Everything is Embarrassing, her latest video explores a folksy side of the pop singer as she rides around in pickup trucks and sulks at gas stations.
Sad Dream is the opening track off of Ghost and it sets a tone for the singer that is unfamiliar, but refreshing considering Sky's roots in pop music. Co-written and produced by Blake Mills, Sad Dream also features guitar played by Blake and Cass McCombs. Currently touring to promote this EP, Sky performed at New York's CMJ Music Marathon that promotes independent artists.
