Perfume Genius - "Fool" (Video)

New MusicadminComment

The previously loved Perfume Genius tags some visuals onto the Too Bright cut "Fool," which had me curious considering the track features a completely unexpected ambient pop-style interlude right in the middle of its run-time. How exactly would this musical transition be handled? Well, with violet curtains, a feather boa, and candles, of course!

It's a pretty abstract set of visuals here, which only brings up more questions in the face of the song's already esoteric storyline. While I don't find it as gratifying as PG's other recent music videos, it's still an opportunity to see Mike Hadreas interacting with a strange cast of characters while rocking golden roller blades. Kudos to director Charlotte Rutherford.
