New: Perfume Genius - "Hood"


Seattle’s Mike Hadreas is prepping his upcoming album as Perfume GeniusPut Your Back N 2 It with a stream of great tracks: first the breathtaking, expansive “All Waters,” now the mixtape-opening, short-and-sweet piano ballad “Hood,” which comes with a great video directed by Winston Case and co-starring gay porn star Arpad Miklos (seriously) as Hadreas’s sensitive, attentive other half.

All awkward, goofy cuteness aside, Hadreas knows how to craft chilling undertones to his music and visuals – the horror-film getups, the atmospheric, processed vocals, the song’s underlying message (“you would never call me baby if you knew me truly!”) are what’ll stick with you. Put Your Back N 2 It is out February 21.
