Perfume Genius "Queen" Video! New Album Due Out In September!
Perfume Genius, aka Mike Hadreas, is back with what is perhaps his strongest, darkest sounding song yet, "Queen." The video is directed by SSION which totally explains its gritty, surreal feeling. New album Too Bright is due out Sept 22nd on Matador Records. According to Matador, the new album is less self-conscious, and less concerned with storytelling and easily-digested melodies, it is a brave, bold, unpredictably quixotic exploration of what Hadreas calls “an underlying rage that has slowly been growing since ten and has just begun to bubble up”. If the entire album is as dark and interesting as "Queen," I am sure it will be one for the ages.
