“Fever,” the new single from Toronto trio Mexican Slang, is a tempest that a teacup cannot contain. Fronted by Annabelle Lee, the former solo project is now a full-fledged band, with bassist Jimmy Tony Rowlinson and drummer Den Holm helping to create well-crafted pop songs buried underneath a DIY tsunami of sound.
