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.
