Sky Ferreira: ‘Red Lips’

Early last year, Sky Ferreira announced that she was still working on her debut album and was changing her musical direction to a more ‘Blondie’ inspired sound by stepping away from electro-pop. Today, the 19-year-old singer-songwriter finally premiered the very first single off the long awaited Wild At Heart. “Red Lips” is gritty 90′s inspired alternative rock track that is much different from what we’re use to hearing from her. This new sound works because Sky‘s persona completely makes it believable and convincing. Produced by Greg Kurstin and co-written by Sky and Shirley Manson, the song carries similarities to a Garbage track. I dig it. What do you guys think?

    So, this is great! I haven’t been a huge fan of her but I did like a couple of her pop friendly tracks so I was interested. This suits her more. I am loving this cool vibe she is giving off. I am more interested in this album now after giving us this hot number. I am getting 90s rock chick vibes as well and I LOVE THAT! Very Zombie (The Cranberries) meets like Maps (Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Very cool.

    I like it, however I don’t think it’s a direction that will work for her…. This genre of music isn’t really popular right now. She needs to do something more catchy yet edgy.

    I like it too but she won’t gain any mainstream success over it. I don’t think that’s what she wants anyway.
