PERFUME GENIUS PERFORMS UNRELEASED SONG ‘KATIE’

Mike Hadreas, a.k.a. Perfume Genius, recently stopped by the New York-based public radio station WFUV & performed an unreleased song ‘Katie’.

Hadreas called the track “one of the heaviest songs that I’ve written.” He said it was a fun song to play, and then added, “Well, it’s not fun at all, actually. But sometimes ‘fun’ for me is feeling like I threw up backwards.”

NPR has the full song.  LISTEN TO ‘KATIE’ HERE.

When an artist is sincere in all that you know this artist, it is the conviction with which he expresses his deepest intimacy in his songs, the meeting can be intimidating.

But from the first second, Mike Hadreas is charming. He has just completed a week of concerts and promo. It is dawn, the neighborhood is still asleep, but he and his band are energetic, willing to share their songs so intense.

We start in the main hall of the restaurant in Manhattan. A grand piano awaits us under a skylight, which illuminates a vegetation which none of us will say if she is alive or not. Mile’s voice fills the hall deserted, with a song perfectly suited to the intimacy of the moment. We move to the bar, sanitized, without light. Another blank canvas that Mike fills one with slow notes, island.

STREAM: PERFUME GENIUS – PUT YOUR BACK N 2 IT

Put Your Back N 2 It the new album by Perfume Genius is out now via Matador/Remote Control.

Perfume Genius is Seattle singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas whose 2010 debut Learning established him as one of the most endearing and quietly forceful performers today, with Hadreas’ work often been compared to Cat Power, Bon Iver and Thom Yorke.

Put Your Back N 2 It, is a more universal work, addressing intimacy, power, family, secrecy and hope, not just through his impressionistic lyrics, but the music itself, which is as lush as Learning was stark.

The hypnotic songs on Put Your Back N 2 It are tender and moving, but they are also surreal and grand, recalling at times the universality of lullabies and hymns, faraway folk songs, the dramatic arc of a film score, and the almost spiritual quality suggests a kind of opiated gospel.

Recorded by John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, Sleater-Kinney, Nada Surf) and producer / contemporary composer Drew Morgan, the record is a sonically beautiful, approachable album.

Put Your Back N 2 It is a gorgeous soundtrack for anyone trying to keep it together in everyday life, and moving forward.
