Sky Ferreira’s “Everything Is Embarrassing” Is Definitely Not Embarrassing
Charli XCX’s buddy Sky Ferreira has premiered “Everything Is Embarassing” off her forthcoming Ghost EP (Oct. 2), and it is a delightful piece of darkly cool dance-pop. Sky pleads “maybe if you let me be your lover” and spends much of the song harmonizing over haunting warped vocals, as piano plinks echo over the drum machine beat from Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The whole thing reminds us of an ornate spiderweb in a dark corner of a strobe-lit dance club. Not that we’ve ever seen such a thing. Listen to it over at Pitchfork.
