“Hood” (Video)

    There’s a new album by Mike Hadreas, aka Perfume Genius, due on Matador on Feb. 21. That record is titled Put Your Back N 2 It, and is likely to significantly increase the profile Hadreas has steadily built up over the past couple of years. Now a video for “Hood” from that album has been issued, which simply shows the singer being coddled by the gigantic gay porn star Arpad Miklos. The song is mostly a simple piano tune with lovelorn vocals over the top, including a brief flourish into jaunty drum-led territory at the close. The clip is simple, effective and striking, much like the track itself. Check it out below.
