Set My Heart On Fire Immediately is the title of the new album from Perfume Genius, aka Mike Hadreas, which is out on May 15th via Matador, and from it, he’s shared a new track and video, called On the Floor.
It’s a bubbling, engaging and warm slice of indie/synth-pop, full of irrepressible melodies (just try not to end up singing along with the backing vocals in the chorus), buzzing basslines and cascading guitar/synth lines.
Hadreas directed the accomapanying video himself, saying of it “A crush can really live on its own, separate from you and the person you are pining for. The fantasy feels like its own world, obsession can turn the person you are longing for in to a monument that has less and less to do with them and more to do with the idea of love itself and what it can do, what it can soothe or quiet or light on fire. I wanted to show that maddening, solitary part of desire but keep the core which is a real warmth and belief that you have something crucial to share with each other.”
