Sky Ferreira proves her star-in-the making tag is not all for show

Listening to the recorded output of 20-year-old Los Angeles singer, model, actress, and meme Sky Ferreira, it’s clear that the star-in-the-making is being pulled in a number of conflicting directions. Whether that’s a result of corporate interests at work behind the scenes, or her own generationally appropriate genre attention span remains to be seen. Her performance at T.T. the Bear’s on Tuesday played out the schizophrenic pace of her two EPs’ varied musical colors in a short 30-minute set.

“Lost in My Bedroom” set the table with its throbbing, dirty bass line and chiming synths, with Ferreira skipping between a lilting and husky vocal approach. The song is the type of pouting electro-pop you might expect to hear soundtracking a runway fashion show, which Ferreira, with her aloof stage presence, ably conjured through a series of self-conscious and endearingly awkward poses.
