new music: Perfume Genius

“Pop Song” is the bright, ethereal, lush new Perfume Genius song from The Sun Still Burns Here, a dance and music performance collaboration with Seattle-based choreographer Kate Wallichof. The Sun Still Burns Here is commissioned by Seattle Theatre Group and Mass MoCA and created, in part, with the support of The Joyce Theater Foundation’s Artist Residency Center. Perfume Genius is the stage name of Seattle-based musician Mike Hadreas. About “Pop Song,” Hadreas said: “I imagined an ecstatic pile of bodies preparing to be consumed by the gods. A joyous communal sacrifice of the physical to spiritually level up. The lyric is like a conjuration spell to be sung when the mountain of bodies settles in position and is held still as an offering.” 

THE SUN STILL BURNS HERE – PERFORMANCE DATES:

November 13 -17, The Joyce Theater, New York City (tickets)

December 5 – 7, Liquid Music X Walker Art Center, McGuire Theater, Minneapolis (tickets)

January 17 – 18, ICA Boston, Boston (tickets)
