Step Into Coldwave Perfection with MAREUX “The Perfect Girl” (The Cure Cover)

Nedda Afsari

Ever felt like someone’s bucket list item? Not conforming enough to be on their everyday path, instead, you’re a quick detour and maybe a funny story about getting lost. That’s what The Cure’s “The Perfect Girl” has always made me think about. Those times when I’ve been so strange it’s alluring. The times I’ve put other people in that same temporary box. The times I’ve put myself in that box, instead of celebrating how strange I can be.

So I think I’m in love with MAREUX‘s new video for his perfect coldwave cover of “The Perfect Girl,” starring RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7 winner Violet Chachki. The visuals, by L.A.’s Muted Widows, are captivating and feel like a glimpse of power and loneliness; a dim, obscure enchantment. And as I was watching this video, my daughter came in and told me this Mareux track is hot on Tik Tok, so it’s uniting generations. You can hear “The Perfect Girl” and more from Mareux on his Soundcloud or check out his releases on Bandcamp. Right now, step into a beautifully strange scene with MAREUX’s “The Perfect Girl.”
