Pop provocateur Perfume Genius has evolved into a formidable force of summoning songs that are deeply vulnerable and achingly confessional.
His pop smarts and sonic innovation is a primal scream that empowers and enthralls. Stretching the outmost corners of the human psyche, his soft, tender balladry turns hauntingly dark.
Often exploring subjects such as sexuality, homophobia and domestic abuse, singer/songwriter Mike Hadreas aka Perfume Genius, draws on influences from PJ Harvey and Liz Phair, combining poetic honesty with brutally contrasting sounds.
Dubbed as ‘pure decadence’ (Pitchfork) Pefume Genius’ newest album No Shape is his most realised yet, a tender transcendental protest record of love and devotion.
Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre, By arrangement with Mistletone
