Ο ελληνικής καταγωγής Michael Alden Hadreas, ευρύτερα γνωστός ως Perfume Genius αναφέρεται συχνά, σε δηλώσεις και τραγούδια, στην ομοφυλοφιλική του ιδιότητα, και στα δεινά που έχει υποστεί σε ένα “εχθρικό για τους gay κόσμο”. Μπορεί κανείς με ασφάλεια να ισχυριστεί ότι έχει εκμεταλλευτεί τα παραπάνω …for publicity reasons.
Θα μπορούσε λοιπόν να μου είναι αντιπαθής, υπό άλλες συνθήκες: αν δηλαδή δεν ήταν ένας από τους πιο ταλαντούχους Αμερικανούς singers-songwriters της γενιάς του. Ακούμε ένα τραγούδι από το φετινό, πέμπτο του άλμπουμ.

The Greek descendant Michael Alden Hadreas, better known as Perfume Genius, often refers in statements and songs to his homosexual status, as well as to the suffering he has suffered in a world “hostile to gay people”.
One can safely claim he’s taken advantage of the above … for publicity reasons. So I could easily dislike the guy under other circumstances: that is, if he wasn’t one of the most talented American singer-songwriters of his generation. We hear a song from his fifth album, released this year.


❝ No bells anymore
Just my stomach rumblin’
Can you describe them for me?
Can you describe them for me?
The lock on the door
Is barely holdin’
Can you just wait here with me?
Can you just wait here with me?
Ooh, his love, it felt like ribbons
Ooh, an echo in the canyon
Ooh, his love, it felt like ribbons
Ooh, an echo in the canyon
Can you just find him for me?
Can you describe them for me?
Can you just find him for me?



Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song ! 😉

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. Enjoyed the song very much Marina! My mobile app is refusing to let me like or comment on Oannes’s post for some reason. Shall try later from my laptop.

    • Ah, so happy to hear that!
      I’ve heard that from other people too but I really don’t know why. Maybe something to do with WP.COM and WP.ORG not communicating well… a glitch. Thank you for trying! ❤

Happy to hear your thoughts
