Press Quotes

“Miesha and the Spanks are busting through the doors of summer with a hard-hitting track and video that will leave you reeling and really feeling the pain. A modern homage to a history that continues to be unearthed, the powder keg single “Dig Me Out” is a sonic journey that tackles vocalist and guitarist Miesha Louie’s experiences with the impact of residential schools. Louie unleashes a tidal wave of emotional vibrations that drive this moving garage rock anthem. It’s not the kind of thing that’s easily addressed in a tight, three-minute, melodic punk package…”

“... an almost riot grrl tone, but also very reminiscent of someone like Juliette Lewis and The Licks. It’s a heavy song and powerful, with blistering guitar work and motorik drum fills…”

“Miesha & The Spanks have done it again. Killer rock energy, solid catchiness, and a message behind it all. Love this one.”

“Gritty, grungy, rock.”

“As we would expect, the latest from Calgary's Miesha & The Spanks is a fiery, amped up version of modern garage rock. However, the song has a much deeper meaning than just being a kick ass rock song.”

“.. captivated by a Native American who arms the guitar and sings the horrors of colonialism in the fury of rock and roll.”

"She does not take any shit from anybody."

“… a high octane new single.”

“The fist-pumping, post-riot grrrl single, “Dig Me Out”, from Calgary rockers Miesha & The Spanks carries a lot of devastating weight on its shoulders.”
