This Sunday November 9th, New York sensation Sky Ferreira will be performing at Austin’s very own Fun Fun Fun Fest. With her seductive vocals, neo goth style and new wave, pop rock-y jams she will be showing Texas what New York youth and music is all about.
At only twenty two, Ferreira began her career as a youngster via MySpace and where she was later signed by record company Bloodshy and Avant. After releasing a series of extended plays, and most infamously her hit song Everything is Embarrassing (with the help of music guru, Dev Hynes) the young musician saw unprecedented, and well deserved fame. With appearances on Jimmy Fallon, top notch modeling contracts, and commercial deals alongside stars like Snoop Dog and Big Sean, Ferreira has dove headfirst into a fruitful, and successful career. She opened for Miley Cyrus during the Bangerz tour where she suffered a stage slip in which she injured herself and left the tour, she came back shortly thereafter, and proved to audiences that Sky was a name they wouldn’t forget.
Her newest album released in 2013, has received favorable reviews and is a wonderful embodiment of grunge inspired indie rock. Complete with her dark makeup, 90’s inspired getup and choppy new haircut, Ferreira has been compared to pop sensation superstars like Fiona Apple and Madonna. Definitely a creative, original and insanely talented musician, Ferreira’s set will be one you don’t want to miss!
The Fun Fun Fun Festival will take place in Austin, Texas from November 7th- 9th. Tickets are on sale now at funfunfunfest.com. Coog Radio will be giving away 14 pairs of 3-day passes so keep a look out!
