Perfume genius - hood

Perfume Genius' full-length debut, Learning, which presented its tracks in the order in which they were recorded, arrived in mid-2010. After spending much of 2011 touring, Hadreas recorded in England and Washington. The results were Perfume Genius' second album, Put Your Back N 2 It, which arrived early in 2012. On 2014’s Too Bright, which was inspired by glam rock, PJ Harvey, and Hadreas' growing frustration with casual homophobia. On March 21, 2017 Hadreas announced his fourth studio album No Shape, releasing via Matador on May 5.

E motion has always been integral to Hadreas’s output. But with No Shape, and its predecessor Too Bright, his feelings of shame and longing have been amplified into rage and smitten desire. This was a gig in which all shades of sentiment were painted by swaggering synths: aching, effervescent crescendo wails and pin-dropping vulnerability, sometimes all in the same song. Hadreas’s vocals, once painfully quiet, have emerged strong and freewheeling.
