Are you in love with Kim Petras like I am? Her “Heart To Break” and “I Don’t Want It At All” have played non-stop during my adventures the past few months. Definitely the soundtrack to my Summer 2018. The 26-year-old just delivered a spooky surprise to her fans in the form of a Halloween-inspired mixtape.
Turn Off The Light, Vol. 1 features eight brand new songs from the rising German pop star. While it shows off her signature catchy pop sound, it’s not as bubblegum as her previous offerings. “In My Next Life” is a theatrical number inspired by Freddy Mercury while “Turn Off The Light,” described by Petras as Monster Mash meets Britney’s Blackout era, features the Mistress of the Dark, Elvira herself. Other favorites of mine are “TRANSylvania” and “Close Your Eyes.”
For those who don’t know who Petras is, she’s a trans pop sensation from Germany. When she was 12-years-old, she began to receive female hormone treatments. By age 16, she had completed gender reassignment surgery. She is sometimes referred to as the youngest person in the world to have undergone gender transition.
Petras is currently on the road supporting Troye Sivan’s Bloom Tour. Be sure to catch her when she’s in your hood. In the meantime, check out her stellar Halloween mixtape below.
