Hadreas widens the scope of No Shape beyond hearth and home, situating its personal narratives within the pressing political conflicts of today.” – The FADER

Perfume Genius seemingly grows wings and sails through joyous flights of fancy like Just Like Love or saccharine serenades like Every Night.” – The Music

Hadreas isn’t afraid to lay himself bare within his songwriting – a trait that listeners will continue to find comfort in.” – Stack
