They say that big things come in small packages and that old adage is certainly true of NPR's Tiny Desk concert series. For their latest video, Perfume Genius set up shop to showcase the quivering, emotional lyrics that made their latest No Shape album the queer classic we fell in love with.
The NPR series has long been a favorite for stripped down performances and this was no different. Clad in a sultry over-the-shoulder denim shirt, frontman Mike Hadreas and his backing band squeezed into the eclectic office space to perform two tracks from the new album--"Valley" and "Slip Away"--and "Normal Song" from one of his earliest albums.
Clocking in at just over nine minutes, it's the tiniest little concert we needed to remind us about the untouchable power of Perfume Genius. Come for Hadreas' powerful vocals and stay for the beautiful sight of Hadreas and his boyfriend/keyboardist Alan Wyffels closing out the concert together with "Normal Song." Watch, below.
