The Californian artist, who emerged as a dazzling figure of synth-pop with gothic overtones in the 2010s, has been announcing her second album, Masochism, for over five years. Three years on since the release of her last single ‘Downhill Lullaby’, Sky Ferreira is back with new track ‘Don’t Forget’. (Hopefully) the first taste of the long-awaited follow up to debut ‘Night Time, My Time’,
When the tracklist for the Baby Driver soundtrack was revealed, one thing that caught everyone attention was the inclusion of new music from Sky Ferreira. The singer/model/actress has a part in the movie as Baby’s mom, but it’s almost more exciting the hear her fresh material. Now, her contribution to the OST has been revealed, and it turns out it’s a cover of The Commodores‘ classic “Easy”.
Though the track may not be original, it is the first solo song we’ve gotten from Ferreira in quite some time. Her take on “Easy” is, perhaps unsurprisingly, smoky and sultry. It burns slow like candle, romantic even as it gives the feeling of discontentment.
Mestre Bergman intoduces a brand new Australian band: Gang Of Youths. Music should bring perspective to life, and Australian quintet Gang Of Youths has turned into a phenomenon back home with this approach. They first made waves with 2013’s “Evangelists,” which set the stage for their full-length debut album, “The Positions”, which received acclaim internationally from The Guardian, Stereogum, Rolling Stones Australia, and more as the band supported the likes of Vampire Weekend, Sky Ferreira, Foster The People and Manchester Orchestra on the road. It’s all because “The Positions” examines one of life’s darkest realities with unmitigated and unwavering honesty: the illness of singer David Leaupepe’s girlfriend at that time, when he was 19. He then just started writing some songs for her to listen to in the hospital. They went to record the album in New York with producer Kevin McMahon (Swans, Rhett Miller, Titus Andronicus), and it came out as a document not only told the story of his now ex-wife’s bout with the disease, but the simultaneous disintegration of their relationship. A truly emotional and life-affirming experience. Today at Primavera Sound.
