Watch: Doomsquad Unveil Music Video For New Single "Dorian's Closet"

Toronto based art-dance sibling trio Doomsquad, have unveiled the video for their new single "Dorian's Closet".

The song is taken from their upcoming new album 'Let Yourself Be Seen', due for release on May 10th through Bella Union. Pre-order your copy here.

From the band:  “Dorian Corey was at the heart of the NYC ballroom / vogue scene in the early 80s. She was a role-model and matriarchal figure for a lot of queer POC youth. When she passed away, due to AIDS, they discovered a mummified body in her closet dating back to 15 years ago. The body was of an ex-con who was believed to be a controlling and abusive ex-lover, and she carried the body around with her from apartment to apartment over all those years.”

“We wanted to tell a much softer and gentler story about a drag queen. One where drag culture has become fully normalised and accepted by society. Where people can feel safe and empowered leaving the house in the middle of the afternoon in drag and carrying out normal day-to-day tasks. Removing the idea around drag culture being exclusively for the night, and carried out in ballrooms, and clubs.”

The video was directed and produced by Paz Ramirez, starring Anna Balmanica. Watch below.
