PERFUME GENIUS (US)

Thursday 05.07.12 - 23:00 - Gloria

A melancholic voice and a battered piano are the starting point.

Perfume Genius digs the simple set-up, and it's hard not to get sucked into Mike Hadreas’ universe of simple minor chords and shattered destinies.

The bright angelic voice from Seattle writes piano ballads so beautiful and winged that you almost see the ill-fated characters from the songs walk past you. The new album Put Your Back N 2 It is even more direct in its choice of subject than its predecessor – it often touches upon homosexual love, addiction and suicide.

Perfume Genius is almost shockingly direct in his lyrics, and the music is filled with wonderful melancholy.

Label: Matador / Playground
