Perfume Genius has shared a striking nine minute composition called “Eye In The Wall” off a forthcoming collaborative music and dance project called The Sun Still Burns Here, which has been created in collaboration with choreographer Kate Wallich and dance company YC.
“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,” Perfume Genius explains in a statement. “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 a parallel that is completely free and overwhelmingly full of feeling.”
The disorienting, almost cyclical track truly has a calculated, yet freeing feeling at its core. The nine-minute experimental tune feels almost manic, with a powerful, yet hidden drum line, eerie whispers, and brooding instrumentals.
Listen to “Eye in the Wall” below.
The Sun Still Burns Here is set to debut in Seattle on October 4th, and then head to New York, Minneapolis, and Boston.
