Having passed through a rather tumultuous adolescence, Michael Hadreas, performing as Perfume Genius, began creating evocative piano led music that covered topics of his own sexuality and some of his life traumas. The music carries the spirit of PJ Harvey and Liz Phair and by the 2014 album Too Bright he was working with longtime Harvey collaborator John Parish as well as Portishead’s Adrian Utley. The album includes the stand out song Queen.
