Rising pop star Dorian Electra (pronouns: they/them/theirs) makes music that defies gender norms. In the past year, their work has gained a queer cult following and led to them being named a must-know talent by Buzzfeed and one of PAPER Magazine’s “100 Women Revolutionizing Pop.” Not only that, but Electra has also quickly built a dedicated fan base thanks to their futuristic spin on 00s pop, 80s funk, and a long-standing love of satirizing rigid gender roles and views on sexuality.
A Charli XCX collaborator, Electra was featured on the Pop 2 track “Femmebot (feat. Dorian Electra & Mykki Blanco).” In 2018, Electra performed at NYC Pride, toured with British pop sensation Rina Sawayama, Charli XCX, and supported Russian group Pussy Riot on their first U.S. tour. Electra’s recent singles and music videos, “Career Boy,” ”Man To Man” and “Flamboyant” have garnered press and playlist spots from Pitchfork, Billboard, The Fader, and Nylon among others. 2019 will see the release of Dorian Electra’s debut album and headlining tour.
