Could've been my everything, now all these tropes are embarrassing:
- Contemptible Cover: Her album Night Time, My Time shows her topless in the shower.
- Darker and Edgier: Gradually, she started making mainstream-sounding Electropop in 2010, to turn her music into a hybrid between Noise Rock, New Wave and Synth Pop music by 2013.
- A Date with Rosie Palms: Heavily implied with "Omanko".
- Dream Team:
- With Ariel Pink, for a new version of his song "My Molly".
- With Blood Orange, who produced "Everything Is Embarrassing".
- With Garbage's Shirley Manson, who co-wrote "Red Lips".
- Eye Scream: from "Boys": "cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye".
- Gratuitous Japanese: "Omanko," which is Japanese slang for "pussy."
- Last Note Nightmare: The title track of her debut album sounds itself nightmare-ish, but in the last minute it starts getting more and more sparse, and really darker, repeating the lines "...faster and faster..." a lot of times, and just when the track hits its darkest, it ends abruptly.
- Lyrical Dissonance: Despite the dance-y atmosphere of her song "Lost In My Bedroom", the song is about dealing with a break-up.
- Mixed Ancestry: Sky is of Native American, Portuguese, and Brazilian ancestry.
- Ms. Fanservice: A bit of a strange and possibly averted version of this trope in the video of "Everything is Embarrasing", with many saying how awkwardly she was trying to act sexy is what they found so bewitching, rather than how sexy they actually thought the video was.
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: See Darker and Edgier.
- Odd Friendship: With Miley Cyrus. Also, her family used to be friends with Michael Jackson.
- Surreal Music Video: "One."
- Textless Album Cover: Her album Night Time, My Time. Also Contemptible Cover.
