October 1st means it’s officially Halloween season, and Kim Petras is here to bless our gay asses with an early treat. “Turn Off the Light, Vol. 1” is a spooky ooky 8-track collection, co-written with cutie pie Jesse Saint John, that shows us a darker, grittier side of this undeniable pop icon in the making. The EP is packed with instant bops like “Close Your Eyes” and the title track “Turn Off the Light,” which by the way features the Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira! Even the songs with minimal vocals, like “TRANSylvania” and “Boo! Bitch!” are a total mood. I have a feeling this is going to be on everyone’s Halloween party playlists and honestly I am already obsessedt.
Miss Petras had been hinting at new material on social media by sharing a series of photos* by artist Lucas David and tweeting cryptic messages @ Jesse. All 8 songs became available at the stroke of midnight (Oct 1). So if you’re looking for a fright, and you wanna do it right, listen to the EP below and on all streaming platforms. Boo-ah!
Kim Petras is currently on tour with Troye Sivan and very casually slaying 2018. *Check out some of the amazing artwork from this era!
