Perfume Genius - Grid

His previous track Queen is already on my best of 2014 list. Stereogum reviews the latest:
Perfume Genius is, among many other things, one of our great working music-video artists. His video for “Queen,” the first single from forthcoming album Too Bright, was a surreal masterpiece, and his new “Grid” video isn’t far behind. The clip, from director Charlotte Rutherford, finds a glammed-up (and eventually bloodied) Mike Hadreas surrounded by dancing, silver-bodysuited demons, then made to serve as the centerpiece of a bizarre dinner party. The video is a tough thing to parse but an even tougher thing to shake. Its atmosphere is knife-edge intense, and its images burn their way into your brain.
