Já se sabia desde Abril passado que Mike Hadreas estava a colaborar com a coreógrafa Kate Wallich e com a companhia de dança The YC num bailado contemporâneo e numa performance ao vivo. O encontro leva o nome de The Sun Still Burns Here e se até agora estava tudo escondido entre as paredes dos estúdios de dança e composição, “Eye In The Wall” abre agora as portas, deixando-se ouvir como o primeiro dos temas que Perfume Genius assina para este encontro a três.

Sobre a nova composição Hadreas reflecte da seguinte forma,

I think of “Eye in the Wall’ as a cosmic peep show. 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.

The Sun Still Burns Here estreia no Moore Theatre em Seattle no dia 04 de Outubro. No Shape, o último disco de originais de Perfume Genius, data de 2017.
