We were disappointed to hear that Sky Ferriera‘s November 22 show at the High Noon Saloon with Smith Westerns was canceled due to a scheduling concern, but that of course hasn’t stopped us from falling in love with her sound. The 21 year old artist who has been compared to the likes of Lorde, Marina & The Diamonds, Natalia Kills, and Charli XCX just released her debut album, Night Time, My Time to rave reviews. Here are just a few of the glowing words of praise:
“Night Time, My Time is bracing, aggressive and surprisingly tender.” – The New York Times
“Night Time, My Time isn’t the reactionarily somber anti-pop drag it could have been–instead, it’s a smart Kelly Kapowski hair-whip and loud bubblegum-crack of a record that lends itself to compulsive listening.” – Pitchfork
“Night Time, My Time might just be the sort of gaunt, darkly painted neurosis needed to combat popular music’s deluge of silly and crude self-affirmations.” – Slant
“Ferreira’s artfully trashy synthpop is a little bit Ladytron austerity, a greater bit Blondie ferocity, and her songcraft is, well, rather astonishing.” – Filter
Ferreira’s album was also recently awarded Album of the Week status over at Stereogum. Excuse the awful pun, but it would seem as though the sky is the limit for this young performer. We hope to see her in Madison soon!
