Effortlessly cool, this anti-club track from Brooklyn duo Blondes whisks you away from crowds and strobes to a dark V.I.P. corner where the distant beats actually sound better and the tempo is slower -- there's space to think here, to gaze at the club dust hanging mid-air through yr private disco ball lights, sweat condensing on concrete ceilings above. "Spanish Fly" opens with some hypnagogic vocal swirls and the most subtle of rhythms but gradually becomes more textured courtesy of some balearic keys and sleek liquid pulsations. It kind of makes sense that these two guys, who met in college in Ohio, spent last year living in Berlin cos there's definitely some sexy but kinda seedy East Berlin steam up in here.

Blondes are currently recording their debut EP and have a Comanechi remix out on Merok soon
