Sky Ferreira, Egyptian Hip Hop, Baauer & Cornelia

Every Friday, four new music picks from music blogs worldwide are published as part of my Day & Night pages. Follow Day & Night on Twitter or Facebook. The magazine is out today in print with every copy of the Irish Independent so pick it up to see my full internet-heavy section as well as the rest of the mag.

Sky Ferreira

Having originally appeared as some kind of Lolita-leaning pop singer, the LA 20 year-old is now in her interesting experimental phase, collaborating with Lightspeed Champion’s Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange and Shirley Manson.

Egyptian Hip Hop

Having buzzed on the music blogs a couple of years ago, this young Manchester four-piece have re-emerged with a pop song called SYH disguised as an off-kilter post-punk synth track.


The fastest rising dance track of the moment, Harlem Shake, is from Brooklyn producer Baauer. It’s been described as future-crunk, trap, dubstep, bass music and more but one thing’s for sure, the tune is sending audiences into a tizzy. As heard at Electric Picnic courtesy of Hudson Mohawke.


A former Swedish Idol contestant, Cornelia appears to be having more success on her own path judging by the tropical-influenced pop of new single Stormy Weather.
