, AKA Mike Hadreas, is weird. A little off-kilter...He takes the core of glam rock and blends it with avant-garde pop, creating something that truly sounds like nothing else. Over at Baeble, we love Hadreas, so in honor of his forthcoming LP No Shape
coming out May 5th, we thought we'd put together some other artists that might be a good fit for Perfume Genius fans. Like we said, no one is quite like him, but these artists might fit a similar vibe.
1. Aldous Harding
The New Zealand singer and Hadreas have actually worked together before. If you listen closely to her song "Imagining My Man," you can hear his melancholic backing vocals in the distance.
ANOHNI, like Hadreas, offers up intimate and personal stories with a touch of glimmering pop.
3. Christine and the Queens
If you're into funky synths and haunting vocals then this French native Heloise Letissier is the one for you. She experiments with dance and writes fearless lyrics about being queer. She also collaborated with Perfume Genius in 2014 on her single, "Jonathan." Clearly this is match made in heaven.
4. Sharon Van Etten
Perfume Genius leaves you feeling a bit sublime after listening to a song or two. So does Sharon Van Etten. The two collaborated on a Grateful Dead cover and both of their somber vocals melt together as if they're one.
5. Cate Le Bon
Cate Le Bon embodies psychedelic garage folk music... She is known for her haunting melodies which vaguely resemble Perfume Genius vocals - both are artful and quirky.
6. Angel Olsen
Angel Olsen is a goddess. She is definitely earned her spot on this list with the way her voice powers side by side with a guitar.
7. FKA Twigs
FKA Twigs is the queen of experimental sound... Fluidity is something that both her and Hadreas have in common.
Much like Hadreas, Mitski knows how to tell a story... A story that will rip your heart to shreds.
9. How To Dress Well
If you really want to embrace your sensitive side and get in touch with your emotions, you listen to Perfume Genius... Or How To Dress Well, AKA Tom Krell.
10. Sufjan Stevens
Sufjan Stevens' latest album Carrie & Lowell
may have been quiet and minimalistic, but boy, did it back a dramatic punch. If you're into very honest
songwriters, you'll like this.
