Sky Ferreira’s EP As If! has found its inevitable way to the Internets this weekend — not too bad, considering its official release date is tomorrow. That’s a heck of a lot better than the luck Britney had with Femme Fatale leaking more than two weeks before its drop date. In any case, Sky’s five-song debut is packed with 80s-style influences (seriously — Sky “pities the fools” Mr. T-style in her lead single “Sex Rules”) and loads of energy, particularly on the infectious “99 Tears”. Listen to it below.
“Cry baby, cry baby, cry / You can drown in nine! Ty! Nine! Tears!” shouts out Sky on the chorus to this delicious spoonful of Euro-dance-pop.
Let’s hope Sky hurries up writing all that new music for her full-length LP, because we’re already craving more. How about you?
