After releasing her celebratory pro-clit anthem, “Clitopia,” earlier this year, rising musician/performance artist Dorian Electra returns today with yet another visual masterpiece—this time for “Mind Body Problem,” a woozy synth-pop single that challenges feminine gender identity.

“‘Mind Body Problem’ is about femininity as a performance—when being a ‘woman’ feels like putting on a costume and the costume doesn’t seem to come off with the clothes,” Electra said of the track. “How do you take this costume off when it’s embedded in bodily movements, ways of walking, talking, and in nakedness itself?”

In the video, directed by Michael Philip Zarowny, shape-shifting Electra wears a range of these costumes, at first posing as a sultry phone sex operator for 1-900-Mind-Body-Problem. “I’ve got your mind on my body, and your body on my mind,” she sings above Andy Milad’s sultry production. In one frame, Electra wears in a wig cap with mascara dripping down her cheeks and in another, she writhes around as part pop star, part football player.

The treatment, true to Zarowny’s signature style, is consciously campy—much like the visual framework for a vintage cult film. Watch the BULLETT premiere, below:
