Listen to Perfume Genius’ ‘Run Me Through’ from School Spirits, S1 E2

American singer songwriter Perfume Genius’ ‘Run Me Through‘ was played on the new Paramount+ teen drama School Spirits this week — School Spirits, Season 1, Episode 2.

The song was heard as Xavier is in his room watching Sponge Bob.

Perfume Genius‘ ‘Run Me Through‘ was released in May, 2017 on the indie singer’s fourth studio album No Shape, which came out on the Matador label.

The album spawned two singles, and was named by various high-level music critics as one of the best albums of the year.

Although it wasn’t a huge hit for the indie rock, baroque pop artist, No Shape also charted in seven countries, including the UK and the U.S.

In the U.S., the album’s highest placing was at #185 on the Billboard Hot 200.

With its bleak lyrics, it is definitely a track that is hard to get out of your head:

Pitted, deep-lined eyes
Rough as last night
Sharp as a mirror
Broke in two
Run me through

Listen to Perfume Genius’ ‘Run Me Through‘ as heard on School Spirits in the video, and on his No Shape album down below.

The first season of School Spirits is currently streaming via Paramount +.
