Perfume Genius’ Mike Hadreas has been putting out some really good videos to accompany his beautiful music from his latest production Put Your Back N 2 It. He’s most recent video for the song “Take Me Home”. The video was filmed in Seattle’s industrial district, near his house.
All the places that he’s walking around in the video he had already been to about seven years ago, when he got kicked out of a place he was staying at. He knew that it was abandoned and creepily lit at night. He liked that he was going to be walking it again, but very differently.
Watch below a previous video by Perfume Genius for the song Hood, which was polemic for featuring Hadreas and pornographic actor Arpad Miklos embracing each other wearing only underwear, was deemed unsafe for family viewing by YouTube.
On October 27, Hadreas will perform at Seattle’s Frye Art Museum as part of his participation in the exhibition Mw [Moment Magnitude]. His videos for Put Your Back N 2 It’s “Hood” and a live video for “Learning” will be shown throughout the exhibition’s run.
