Drag king/queen Stephen/Cassandra is a fresh new artist in the electro art pop scene who is unafraid to push the boundaries of traditional binary ways of thinking while making catchy danceable music created in untraditional dada-esque fashion.
Having adopted a bohemian lifestyle from an early age, this up-and-coming artist has been able to capture and combine their one-of-a-kind experiences and broader philosophical thinking into musical and visual art worth admiring.
Drawing upon inspiration from a wide range of artists, from Elvis Presley to Lady Gaga, «We Are The Emperors» immediately captures the listener’s attention with thumping percussive beats alongside the funky guitar playing underneath. That with the smooth baritone vocals create an experimental soundscape quite different from and much needed in the modern popular music scene.
The music video released alongside the song for «We Are The Emperors» goes hand-in-hand with the song’s general messages about gender expression and the ongoing shifting political landscape. Featuring several genderfluid individuals, including Emperors’ drag queen and drag king personas, this music video truly captures the essence and capabilities of a much-needed revolutionary artist.
The music video for Michael Fairman’s «Other Side» sheds light on some of the biggest social issues of 2020 including the Covid-19 pandemic, the call to stomp out systemic racism, domestic violence, LGBTQ equality, and the rights of the disabled.
