Continuing her march forward, UK producer Ikonika’s new song is as much industrial as it is dance. Ikonika tracks have often teased a darker side and "Fleas" is a heavy push into grimmer territory. The drums are buried here, mainly soggy toms repeating a fill like a sad march. Primarily it's deep keys that propel the melody, Ikonika's specialty. Here she has two sets of synth sounds at once: a low buzz and an almost Arabic poppy dawdling. "Fleas" is complex and great for it, potentially the best Ikonika track yet, which is saying a lot.
