American singer Dorian Electra is an interesting figure on the underground pop music scene. They first appeared in February 2016, releasing a series of singles themed around sexual education and Queer history, including viral hits “High Heels” and “Drag”. In 2018, they began working on their debut studio album, which was eventually released in mid-July in the form of Flamboyant — a very fitting title.

Flamboyant is explosive, loud, and really entertaining. Electra uses their quick wit and musical genius to touch upon themes of gender, masculinity, religion, and even capitalism in a way that’s both original and cohesive. They proudly own their identity on tracks like “Flamboyant” and “Adam & Steve” and lets you know exactly who they are on tracks like “Mr. To You” and “Guyliner”.

As a whole, the title track most faithfully represents the album. It’s theatrical and over-the-top, featuring powerful synths and heavy electronic bass. Electra shows you how flamboyant they are in the music video with lots of makeup, Elizabethan costumes, and dramatic lip-syncing.

Dorian Electra has come a long way since their debut, and with their first headlining tour underway, their journey to stardom continues. Flamboyant is available now across all online and streaming platforms.
