...and comes up with a song (and video) that's taking the internet by storm—which makes the work sound more salacious and directly confrontational than it is. The lead single off his forthcoming LP Too Bright, "Queen" finds singer/songwriter Perfume Genius (aka Seattle's own Mike Hadreas) adding some highly rewarding aggression to his music. Citing influences on his new sound, Hadreas has mentioned Kate Bush's The Dreaming, a classic example of a would-be wispy type harnessing the power of furious percussion. But in "Queen," I hear more of what Dave Bry at the Awl rightly clocked as T-Rexiness. The video is its own work of art, littered with beautiful visual provocations. Enjoy.
