Perfume Genius, "Dark Parts"

Singer/songwriter Mike “Perfume Genius” Hadreas has cast his mother, Carmen Hadreas-Boggs, in the new video for his song “Dark Parts.” First they sit around the house with their dogs. Then they go out into the backyard and do a Hawaiian sort-of dance around a campfire. (Leaving a pot on the stove, which makes me me nervous. Let’s just hope they didn’t put on DogTV for the dogs.) And then they take a walk in the woods and hug and climb a tree. It all ends up being very moving — as befits a song with the beautiful sentiment of taking the dark part of someone else’s heart into your own heart.
