Perfume Genius has announced Australian tour dates, alongside recently announced festival shows, following the release of fourth album, No Shape, recorded in Los Angeles, produced by Blake Mills, mixed by Shawn Everett. Full tour dates and details below!
Known early as a poster-wraith for notorious, joyous, tortured and free boys, girls and their fellow travellers, the first two albums by Perfume Genius consisted largely of exquisite and cruelly abbreviated songs seemingly sung in the dark at a piano with all the silences left in.
Perfume Genius’s 2014 breakout album Too Bright stepped out saucily onto a bigger stage, expressing, with the production help of Adrian Utley, emotions arranged all along the slippery continuum from rage to irony to love.
Now with No Shape we have seized the vocabulary of the full expression of all music. Mike Hadreas goes even further, merging church music, makeout music, R&B, art pop, krautrock, and queer soul into his take on stadium anthems, completing the journey from critically acclaimed underground hero to fully fledged pop auteur.
