Perfume Genius debuts new song “Eye in the Wall”

“Eye in the Wall” is taken from The Sun Still Burns Here, a dance and music collaboration between Perfume Genius and choreographer Kate Wallich.

Earlier this year, Perfume Genius announced that he was working on a dance show with Seattle-based choreographer Kate Wallich. Titled The Sun Still Burns Here, the performance will debut next month. The artist has now shared the first song off of the project, “Eye in the Wall”. About the 9 minute-long theatrical track, Mike Hadreas explained in a statement:

I think of “Eye in the Wall’ as a cosmic peep show. Watching, being watched, dancers unlatched from the Matrix and truly LIVING. Creating new rituals on the other side. Whole bodies braiding, spit glowing in the dark and a camera floating just above. We spent a lot of time in the studio alternating between the math of the song and the magic of it—which was very much like the process of creating the dance itself. Working with Kate Wallich and YC, really being with my body, really being with other bodies – there is control and a real formula but a portal opened up in parallel that is completely free and overwhelmingly full of feeling.
