Seattle’s Mike Hadreas makes disarmingly beautiful, chillingly cold ambient electro as Perfume Genius, and come February 21st, he’ll be dropping a new record of his dark soundscapes called Put Your Back N 2 It.
Our first listen is the too-short “All Waters,” which sounds like a two-minute Sigur Ros song in English and feels like watching the person you love drive away from you in the middle of the night in the pouring rain. Near-ambient, droning instrumentals leave Hadreas plenty of room to break every heart in the universe with his gorgeous, elastic voice. This one’s worth putting on repeat.
