CURRENT: Perfume Genius – “Grid”

“Queen”, the debut single from Perfume Genius’ forthcoming Too Bright, hinted at Mike Hadreas shifting from the quiet ache he mastered on his first two albums. But even “Queen” couldn’t have prepared us for “Grid”, which finds the Perfume Genius mastermind as arresting and loud as he’s ever been. It’s no more or less dark than his previous material, yet where his previous output found the artist resigning to a life on the margins, “Grid” shows us Hadreas finally fighting back.

Too Bright is out 23 September via Matador.
