Release[edit | edit source]

On May 22, 2018, Death Grips shared "Flies" on social media[1][2]. The song was released with an accompanying music video[3].

Reception[edit | edit source]

"Flies" received generally positive review from critics upon its release. Writing for Consequence of Sound, Randall Colburn described the song as "[evoking] a swarm of winged creatures, its spastic beat underscoring whirring synths, colorful drones, and MC Ride’s trademark bark."[6] Jake Boyer of Highsnobiety commended "Flies" for "offering [Death Grips'] usual potent blend of visceral hardcore electro with a heart of utter darkness".[7]
