Did Kim Petras invent Halloween? After hearing her latest contribution to the spooky month of October I’d say YES. Petras has been teasing the deadly project for a while now as fans bled out for the release date. Petras released her second part of Turn Off the Light and it DELIVERED. Featuring eight new scary tracks, Petras has proved yet again that she thrives in the dark shadows of Halloween.
Opening track, “Purgatory” is as terrifying as you’d think. Organ-like chords intro the song as Kim’s hyper-produced harmonizing vocals carry the song into what could easily be a club banger. Cue the strobe lights and smoky stage. While “There Will Be Blood” is a chanty anthem for the pop stans still ready to rage. Petras sings, “there will be blood, run for your life, go on and say, go on and say your last goodbye.” Although the sentiment is harsh, you can’t deny the pop beats are prevalent and pure fun.
“<demons>” and “Knives” are two interludes off the album that could double as a haunted house soundtrack. “Knives” will give you chills down your spine as the sharpening of knives echoes throughout the two and half minute long track. “<demons>” has more of a deep house feel with a spoken word intro saying, “The spirits are living in the house possessed, they never existed in physical form, they only exist in spirit form, It’s true evil, demons.” Add this to your workout playlist and watch those calories die off. This beat could get your grandma dancing down the runway. Heavy production and explicit pop-centric lyrics make this album iconic in every way.
