Remixers are gonna LOVE this shit. Thanks over to MuuMuse for the heads up (although I did Re-Tweet a Tweet from Sky Ferreira herself about the single. The Bloodshy & Avant-produced “One” is the official first single off the 17 Year-Old’s debut album due out later this year by Parlophone in the UK and Capitol here in the U.S.
Earlier this year Ferreira released “17” with an accompanying music video. That song, while more of a promotional, hype-generating device, also proved that Ferreira can actually sing. Now that THAT pesky little detail is out of the way, it’s on to something a bit more fun! MuuMuse was dead-on when he described the song as…a cross between Marina & The Diamonds, Little Boots & Diana Vickers. He also got it right by calling it a “more musically interesting response to Ke$ha, but without all of the distracting faux-drunk revelry.” Faux-drunk revelry. What a little wordsmith Bradley is! LOVE IT!
I really like how MuuMuse puts it…[“One”] sounds a bit like if Marina & The Diamonds‘ “I Am Not A Robot” went out for a few drinks with Little Boots’‘ “Stuck On Repeat,” except the date took place in an underwater bar and Bloodshy & Avant were busy conducting a small symphony in their scuba gear nearby while Diana Vickers‘ “Once” was busy making sexy eyes at them from the corner of the bar.” Pure candy-disco-electro-pop-confection-perfection if you ask me!
