Perfume Genius is the stage name adopted by singer songwriter Mike Hadreas, who writes songs that are impeccably constructed indie pop pieces with a haunting quality that occasionally steer in the direction of indie rock. His recent work has been exploring a expansive and meditative spaces with the pop factor turned quite a bit down. He has a deep emotional well to draw from and being the skilled songwriter that he is, he knows how to weave all that material into songs while maintaining a balance between rough and polished, raw and guarded. His music tends to be fairly restrained in many ways. He likes adding layers of tension and sometimes building it up with no obvious release at the end. His songs are often lyrical in nature with a lot of subtleties in his melodies. They evoke a sense of longing, especially when he is just pouring his hurt out, seated by a piano, with or without an orchestra in the background.
