PLAYING DETROIT: Sheefy McFly “Neon Love Affair”

Electrified funk master Sheefy McFly blessed us this week with “Neon Love Affair,” a fresh futuristic time-warp that channels the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog (ala rumored composer Michael Jackson) with a serious dose of technicolor sass. Released as a companion piece to his solo art exhibition of the same name this Friday at Two James Distillery in Corktown, “Neon Love Affair” embodies the rawness of the lovestruck renaissance man Sheefy truly is.

“The Last Kiss” by Sheefy McFly

Enlisting producer and multi-instrumentalist Gabe Gonzalez and mix masters Hir-O Beats, the collaboration is an undeniably layered trip into the rabbit hole. The track grinds with lip-smacking drum licks, deep house bass beats and synths that level up while Sheefy unapologetically asks “Do he treat you liked I do?/Do he trust you like I do?/Do he know you like I do?/Do he fuck you like I do?” But “Neon Love Affair” is no pity party. Instead, the track is an invitation to dance the pain away, moonwalking forward, looking back only once.
