Mike Hadreas, at age 26, decided to take his life and art into his own hands, his own mouth. In doing so, he recast what we understand as music into a weather of feeling and thinking, one where the body (queer, healing, troubled, wounded, possible and gorgeous) sings itself into its future. When listening to Perfume Genius, a powerful joy courses through me...in the velvet and smoky bass and synth that verge on synesthesia, the scores at times a violet and tender heat in the ear. If sound is, after all, a negotiation/ disruption of time, then in the soft storm of Set My Heart On Fire, the future is here. Because it was always here.
