Too Bright

Perfume Genius - 2014

    Mike Hadreas records ultra-emotional songs under the name Perfume Genius. (His last album, Put Your Back In 2 It, was a critical favorite in 2012) Previous releases have been intimate “chamber pop”, but Too Bright is an ambitious glam rock experience. There are gritty synths and dynamic builds that weren’t part of PG’s previous sound. He still writes emotional music, but it feels that he’s letting us all in a little bit more. I didn’t connect with the previous record, but the sounds and images in this music has made me a fan. Hopefully this new sound is a step in a permanent direction for him and not just a one time detour. Check out “Queen” and “Grid"
