Perfume Genius on Crying Along to TLC’s “Unpretty” and Not Singing Like Adele

Pitchfork Article

On his boldly eclectic new album, No Shape, Perfume Genius’ Mike Hadreas proudly shows off his range, offering his own spin on convulsing epics, slithery R&B odes, skewed chamber pop, and radical balladry. These songs don’t really resolve songs in ways you’d expect—a quality that’s echoed often in the music he listened to over the course of a week in March, as he wrapped up a promo trip to London and headed home to Seattle to rehearse for his current tour.
