In a track-by-track breakdown of his recent Put Your Back N 2 It LP, Mike Hadreas, the falsetto-bearing heartbreaker better known as Perfume Genius, says he penned the relatively upbeat "Dark Parts" for his mom, "to remind her how strong and beautiful and loved she is." Fittingly, Carmen Hadreas-Boggs stars alongside her son in the adorable, puppy-packed video for the track. Directed by Winston H. Case, who was also behind the stunning clip for the Hadreas' "Hood" clip, it features mother and son cradling pooches, playing Scrabble, and participating in a choreographed dance around a campfire with a masked man. You know, typical family time.
