In Praise Of: Perfume Genius

Mike Hadreas, aka Perfume Genius, believes you can be “tough and brave and gentle at the same time.” The Seattle-based singer-songwriter has been resonating deeply with select audiences since his debut, Learning, in 2010. He leaves no holds barred and presents an incredibly voyeuristic and vulnerable portrait of himself, his beliefs, and his experiences. Learning reflects Hadreas’ personal journey back from tough times and self-destructive habits.

While some found Learning a bit uncomfortable, his next album is rumored to be more accessible and feature music as “lush as Learning was stark.

Put Your Back N 2 It drops on Tuesday and is available for pre-order on iTunes. – Check out a track from each below.
