The full-length debut from model-actress-singer Sky Ferreira sounds like a soundtrack for the Breakfast Club remake playing in her head. Ferreira airlifts her electropop hooks straight from the Eighties, her yelping, surly vocals frosted with thick production and her constant synths reflecting every Tears for Fears anthem ever blasted during a coastal joyride. Some of the modern EDM heaviness of Icona Pop and Sleigh Bells kicks in latently, but the 21-year-old's iciness ultimately fails to charm. Although, between its well-placed chimes and the propulsive hook about ephemeral love, "24 Hours" sounds like the Simple Minds song you didn't know you wanted to hear.
