Perfume Genius, aka Seattle native Mike Hadreas, unveils the video for new splendid single ‘Take Me Home’, out now on Organs (Turnstile).
The track is taken from his sophomore album, the outstanding ‘Put Your Back N2 It’.
The video for ‘Take Me Home’, was directed by Patrick Sher and shows Perfume Genius, wearing heels, dancing and a memorable pit stop at a gas station.
Its the perfect accompaniment to a jewel of a song whose upbeat, majestic pop sheen masks an unnerving undertow of emotional oblivion and desperation, as he says he will be “like a shadow of a shadow of a shadow…for you”, like a man so eager to be loved that he will even annihilate his sense of self in the process.
