> Perfume Genius’ sophisticated and grandiloquent pop joins Mad Cool 2018.
> His latest album, No Shape, has crowned Mike Handreas as one of today’s most inspiring artists.
Perfume Genius is the project of Mike Hadreas, a singer and composer of Greek origin. His music features delicate piano ballads, electronic textures and highly sophisticated glam rock, while his lyrics explore controversial themes such as sexuality, homophobia and gender violence with brutal yet poetic honesty.
He developed an interest for plastic arts, writing and music in his infancy. In 2008, he created a MySpace profile to share his first songs. A year later, he landed a record contract to release his debut album, Learning (2010). The follow-ups Put Your Back N 2 (2012) and Too Bright (2014) were highly praised by the specialised press.
In 2017, he published a fourth studio album, No Shape (2017). Crowned by several publications as one of the best albums of the year, it widens his influences, covering such distinct genres as gospel, gothic pop and soul. We will have the chance to listen to his new songs live at Mad Cool.
