Sky Ferreira’s searing, wounded synthpop anthem “I Blame Myself” was arguably the best song on her great debut album Night Time, My Time, and some of us have been wondering for months why it wasn’t a single. Earlier this month, Ferreira performed the song on The Tonight Show, and this morning, she debuted its video. Counterintuitively enough, the clip stars Ferreira as a badass drug-turf enforcer, the type of criminal who deals with police-station interrogations by going into aggressive-seductress mode. It also brings back the old “Beat It” idea that gangs should do choreographed dances. It’s a great, weird video, and you can watch it below (via SSENSE).
Night Time, My Time is out now on Capitol.
