26 year old Mike Hadreas is Perfume Genius and he has just released his eagerly anticipated debut album Learning. The tracks feature simple chords aggrandized by sofisticated piano and delicate layered backing vocals adding extra depth to the strangely inspirational melancholy sound. His hypnotising voice has a distinct likeness to that of acclaimed artist Sufjan Stevens. This is one of those albums that you will go back to in years to come and relish in its blissful moments like re-living a beloved forgotten childhood dream.
