Watch Perfume Genius’ Beautifully Eccentric Video for New Single “Grid”

The Seattle musician unveils his latest pulsating single from the upcoming Too Bright album in a video directed by Charlotte Rutherford.

September 09, 2014

Continuing with the bold, brash sound that was evident on his recent single “Queen,” Seattle artist Mike Hadreas, aka Perfume Genius, has released a video for another new track, the hauntingly pulsating “Grid” from his upcoming album Too Bright. And just like the “Queen” video, the Charlotte Rutherford-directed clip for “Grid” is an eccentric piece of conceptual art. It features our hero in unusual circumstances, from being tugged and pulled by silver-clad dancers to sitting on a table surrounded by garish-looking food and '60s B-movie characters. In other words, weirdness never looked or sounded this good. Too Bright comes out via Matador on September 21st, a few days before Hadreas embarks on a two-month North American tour. And while you're checking out that clip, watch The FADER's interview with Hadreas from a couple of years back.
