SKY FERREIRA – Downhill Lullaby (Single) // Capitol

Sky Ferreira’s first new song in six years,“Downhill Lullaby”, brings to mind a nightmarish version of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice scene from Fantasia. Drawing inspiration from Disney throughout the recording sessions, Ferreira instructed violinist Nils Gröndahl to “play it as if you’re one of the birds in Snow White, singing underwater, while slowly being suffocated by plastic”. With lush string orchestration and melancholic vocal delivery, “Downhill Lullaby” serves as a perfect introduction to the singer’s forthcoming sophomore album, Masochism, giving only a taste of the brooding and violent themes fleshed out on the full length.
