If you only heard 20-year-old Sky Ferreira’s music, you might think she was a child of the ’80s: Madonna beats, sparse synths, breathy vocals recorded on the other side of the food court from the guitars. Then you click on her videos and she’s lounging around in her undies with a tarantula on her face, or clutching her heart through a little black dress, or challenging you to a staring contest with her scary Swimfan eyes. Hints of Garbage. A little Courtney Love-ly. Now you don’t know what to think.
