Biography

Seattle, Washington, US (2008 – present)

Mike Hadreas, also known as Perfume Genius is a singer/songwriter from Seattle, Washington, US. Perfume Genius began when he moved from New York to his mother’s home in Everett, WA. In these relatively isolated conditions, Hadreas felt a compulsion to make music and began composing fragile yet brutally honest songs on the piano. By 2008 he had set up a MySpace page and began offering his music there, along with similarly spare and evocative homemade music videos. Turnstile released the single Mr. Peterson — the tale of a suicidal, pedophile high-school teacher — in 2009. Perfume Genius’ full-length debut, Learning, which presented its tracks in the order in which they were recorded, arrived and released on June 21, 2010.

    Gosh, that was quick. I've gone from thinking the new song was "good" to the best thing ever... and the video, oh my goodness. Heels on the table, too good!! Mike's truly beautiful inside and out. "Queen" still feels like a Perfume Genius song despite the droning guitar and the fuller, brighter sound. It feels a natural change of direction. The prospect of Mike's (what we think of as) fragile voice at the forefront, powerful and annoyed is a tasty one. Mike said that this anger has been inside of him for all these years. I suppose you can't just lament forever. It's good to let out some of the venom stored within. I've got so much rage inside of me as well that has built up over the years, so I can't wait to let it out with the help of these songs which i'm pretty sure i'll be able to relate to. It's certainly going to be a difficult couple of months waiting for this record to release.

    Queen is ok....not a huge fan of the guitar. It's very droning. Hoping he incorporates more piano in the rest of the tracks.

    "Queen" is interesting. Mike said that the new album is a lot darker than the previous two. This new song musically is brighter and more open. I'm hoping we'll still get some of that Perfume Genius melancholy and the fragility we fell in love with. I am still liking the new song however. It's very good. I'm so excited for the record.
