The previously enthusiastic track has been manipulated, softened and blessed by the vocals of Mike Hadreas, the man behind the Perfume Genius name, offering a song completely reimagined for 2019.
Working together with the original co-producer Jim-E Stack, Perfume Genius’ official cover looks to 80s love ballads for deeper percussion, softer synth tones and a typically Perfume Genius delivery of delicate yet punchy vocals.
The track is backed up by Rodriguez herself with the two artists complementing each other’s vocals, offering a harmonious dynamic that tells the story of suddenly understanding an unhealthy relationship.
Just as hard-hitting as before but with a softer delivery, you can swoon over Perfume Genius’ cover on both Spotify and Apple Music.
