Perfume Genius + Mama Kin Spender

A musical journey from brooding ballads to block party.


‘These feel less like songs and more like treasures, ones that fill you with power and wisdom.’

- Pitchfork (Perfume Genius)

Travelling from moments of perfect sonic intimacy to stadium-sized bang, often within the one song, the music of singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas explores a life peppered with discontent. His project Perfume Genius spans a world from fragile piano ballads to swaggering glam rock, with influences of gospel, goth pop and soul. 

Mama Kin Spender is a lightning-bolt fusion between powerhouse raconteur Mama Kin and multi-instrumentalist and producer Spender. A duo of brooding guitars and primal drums, elevating a raw but joyful journey of songs that rattle, roll and tremble, Mama Kin Spender rails from block party to heart-rending ballad, illuminated by the perfect harmonies of WAAPA Gospel Choir.
