Autumn Mix #3: You're Not The One

Sky Ferreira's been in the news this week for the wrong reasons, but let's hope she can keep it together. You're Not The One is her finest single and one of the best of 2013. The lyric is actually quite forlorn ("I won't even fight. You're not the one"), but the recording is all bite.

And the video. Holy fuck, it's flawless. Serious shades of Debbie Harry and Shirley Manson here. It's stacked with moments that add to her "iconography," like the flick of the hand at :50 (on the first chorus) or the way she struts into the vortex of lasers at the end (3:40).  Amazing.

Sky, giving us the rock chick in 2013. On iTunes NOW.
