PERFUME GENIUS

Perfume Genius from Seattle stands out with his dramatic glam-pop, great songwriting and even better entertainment. To come to terms with his difficult and prejudiced past Mike Hadreas began to write songs, in which he combines strong emotions with fragility in an unique way. With his music he rejects the clichés placed on us by outsiders. His dramatic pop songs are fragile yet brutally honest expressing emotions arranged all along the slippery continuum from rage to irony to love. Perfume Genius does not go with the flow, instead he likes to attract the attention and take people out of their comfort zone. His music is full of drama, glitter and gold which shines through in his extravagant videoclips. On Twitter he teased his upcoming fourth album called „No Shape“ which will be released at the beginning of May. In working with Blake Mills, who produced the latest Alabama Shakes album and plays with John Legend, Perfume Genius found his new comfort zone, which takes his music to a whole new level. Don’t miss his only Swiss show at ZURICH OPENAIR with plenty of bombastic tunes and entertainment.
