Perfume Genius Announces Melbourne Show
Perfume Genius, playing Laneway Festival nationally, has announced a special sideshow at Northcote Social Club.
The nom de musique of Seattle’s Mike Hadreas, Perfume Genius began when he moved from New York to his mother’s home in Everett, Washington. In these relatively isolated conditions, Mike felt a compulsion to make music and began composing fragile yet brutally honest songs on the piano, culminating in his debut release Learning in 2010 and a series of evocative homemade videos. This year’s follow-up, Put Your Back N 2 It has been feted by reviewers for its confessional intimacy, piano-led beauty and firm grasp of identity politics.
Special guest on the evening will be local dreamboat Wintercoats.
Perfume Genius performs at Northcote Social Club on Wednesday January 30. Tickets from the venue site.
