Maybe it's the pouring rain we're currently experiencing over here in Brooklyn, but Perfume Genius
just released his latest album No Shape
today and it is sounding so damn fine.
"Die 4 You" may not be a standout track, but we're featuring it as our Song of the Day because it's such a beautiful cut. Mike Hadreas whispers in a hushed falsetto for the entire song - his ability to refrain and control his voice without sacrificing the emotion is incredible. Around the 1:30 mark, the song falls into a groove. An upright bass takes over along with some other orchestral instruments and Hadreas perfectly aligns, suddenly sounding like he's underwater. Like the entire LP, it's a dizzying, cinematic dream.
