For four minutes and change Monday night at Maxwell’s in Hoboken Sky Ferreira not only looked but sounded like a pop idol in waiting. “Everything is Embarrassing”, her 2012 blogosphere fave, closed her 50-minute set in an aching, shimmering, starry-eyed manner. When it ended the crowd pleaded for more Sky.
The dozen or so numbers that preceded “Everything is Embarrassing” offered nothing near as electric or eargasmic. Sky and her four pretty boy bandmates, seemingly hand-selected from men’s clothing catalogues, tried dance, new wave, and quiet, acoustic tunes on like dome-conscious shoppers try on hats.
