Perfume Genius – “Queen”

Perfume Genius Queen

Perfume Genius is no stranger to provocative videos, and the clip for “Queen,” off upcoming album Too Bright, is another visually stunning piece that handles pretty weighty topics in a beautiful way. Singer/songwriter Mike Hadreas is at the center of the video, portraying a male prostitute who is taken to a factory by a woman in a convertible, where he walks into an elevator full of pigs and later smashes TVs. The video then gets into some bigger issues of sexual and gender identity, propositioning a one-legged Elvis impersonator, one-percenter privilege, and eventually suicide. It’s intense. Watch it below.

Too Bright is out Sept. 23 via Matador.
