Dorian Electra’s “Guyliner” video might warrant a trip to Hot Topic

February 21, 2020

Dorian Electra makes identity-focused anthems that are always delivered in immaculate stage makeup. Their latest single "Guyliner" pays tribute to the art of a thick outline, and today, they're finally unveiling a new video for the track. The clip, directed by Electra and Weston Allen, accentuates the camp of the scene era with the help of Nadya from Pussy Riot, Hana, Chester Lockhart, Smrtdeath, Mood Killer, and more.

"I wanted to harken back to the mid 2000s emo MySpace scene kid aesthetic because that was a really special cultural moment for masculinity that helped make it more okay for 'guys' to wear tight 'girl's' jeans, makeup, have 'crazy' hair and be more flamboyant in general," Electra wrote in a statement. "The idea of rockstar guys wearing makeup like 'guyliner' was definitely something that ultimately made me feel more comfortable wearing makeup myself as a gender fluid person. I wore super thick black eyeliner all throughout high school."
