The music of Perfume Genius is unmistakably physical. It’s like the borders between Mike Hadreas own queer, troubled, healing, and sexual body and his creative output are non-existent. And much like the body, his music is truly alive. Artists like that are hard to come by but fortunately the singularity of Perfume Genius artistry has not gone unnoticed. For the last decade he has gathered a devoted following and received wide acclaim for all of his five distinctively different albums, the most recent being ‘Set My Heart On Fire Immediately’ – possibly his most accomplished work so far. This year Perfume Genius will be releasing his sixth studio album ‘Ugly Season’ and as if that wasn’t enough, this summer he will also bless Way Out West with his incomparable presence.
Perfume Genius will be playing on Friday August 12th.
