On his 5th album ‘Set My Heart On Fire Immediately’, Perfume Genius is as soul-baring and touching as ever. While writing about sexuality, body dysmorphia, and movement, the Seattle born, L.A. based singer-songwriter taps into baroque-pop, glam-rock, alt-country and more.

2SER’s Music Director Steph Liong spoke to Perfume Genius about the influence of camp, American masculinity, and the yeehaw agenda. He begins by explaining the significance of last year’s dance production ‘The Sun Still Burns Here’ and how it altered his approach in creativity and became a profound experience for him.
