Perfume Genius “Rusty Chains”

Perfume Genius in SPIN (click image to enlarge)

If you’ve seen Perfume Genius live as of late you may have heard the beautiful (non-album) track, “Rusty Chains” mixed into the set. We’re happy to bring you this track today. Mike Hadreas explains “Rusty Chains” is “a song for a man whose lover has died. He remembers a time, before his partner took sick, where everything felt safe and endless. He asks to be taken next, so they can be together again.”
