The Spanish Flies – ‘Mr. Evil’ (released February 20, 2019)

I’ve had this song ‘Mr. Evil’ and its flipside ‘Egypt’ on my playlist all week. The brand-new single from Edmonton, Canada’s The Spanish Flies has this deliciously weird and almost paranoid vibe to it. But, intriguingly, the song is actually about escaping your own evil. Buoyed along by a slinky bass line and a mellow, but infectious groove, Mr. Evil is just the kind of song to warm up your chilly February and get you dancing. And be sure to check out the ‘flipside’ song ‘Egypt’, a languid and dreamy instrumental with a memorable melodic riff; the perfect complement to its A side song.
