2012 has seen Perfume Genius, aka Seattle native Mike Hadreas, go steadily from strength to strength. His sophomore album, the gorgeous “Put Your Back N2 It”, saw him earn his biggest raves to date on both sides of the pond, with resulting tours across the UK and Europe selling out and effortlessly capturing audience’s hearts.
Now Perfume Genius is releasing his third single “Take Me Home” – a jewel of a song whose upbeat, majestic pop sheen masks an unnerving undertow of emotional oblivion and desperation, as he says he will be “like a shadow of a shadow of a shadow…for you”, like a man so eager to be loved that he will even annihilate his sense of self in the process.
