Perfume Genius Goes Home Again, Hangs Out With Mom For New Video "Dark Parts"

Moms are cool. Moms that take you in during the dark times and let you record stunning debut albums like Perfume Genius' Learning in their house are super-cool. So what better way to say thanks and pay tribute, with Mother's Day fast approaching, than with a music video? For the new clip for Put Your Back N 2 It's "Dark Parts" (directed by Winston H. Case), Hadreas goes home again to hang out with mom Carmen Hadreas-Boggs, along with bandmate/boyfriend Alan Wyffels (and Others). It's a simple quiet night at home: dogs, dinner, scrabble, ritual dancing in the backyard, a creepy Twin Peaks tree-climb. Like a lot of Perfume Genius' songs, "Dark Parts" is haunted, frail, but ultimately hopefully, with Hadreas' voice wavering but persevering over a rush of piano--and the video's contrast between mythic dark and domestic comforts makes for a simple but terribly effective treatment.
