Three years later Too Bright, American singer-songwriter Perfume Genius (aka Mike Hadreas) has released a new album in 2017. No Shape is out via Matador Records. Now he’s back with a new track titled “Eye in The Wall“. It is taken from The Sun Still Burns Here, an upcoming evening-length dance and music performance collaboration betweem Perfume Genius and Seattle-based choreographer Kate Wallich and dance troupe the YC.
He says on the track: “I think of “Eye in the Wall” as a cosmic peep show. Watching, being watched, dancers unlatched from the Matrix and truly LIVING. Creating new rituals on the other side. Whole bodies braiding, spit glowing in the dark and a camera floating just above. We spent a lot of time in the studio alternating between the math of the song and the magic of it — which was very much like the process of creating the dance itself. Working with Kate Wallich and YC, really being with my body, really being with other bodies – there is control and a real formula but a portal opened up in parallel that is completely free and overwhelmingly full of feeling.”
