Clocking in at eight minutes, Perfume Genius’ newest track is a swirling sonic experience that will mesmerise you taken from ‘The Sun Still Burns Here’, a forthcoming dance and music collaboration with choreographer Kate Wallich and dance company The YC.
“I think of ‘Eye in the Wall’ as a cosmic peep show,” says Perfume Genius. “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.”
