Press Quotes

"I Want Fire" is a huge rock song. The obvious comparisons are going to be The White Stripe and The Devil's Twins, and those are indeed apt. It's also going to remind you of more classic bands like the MC5 and the Runaways. Miesha & The Spanks are in good company with those. "I Want Fire" is a rock song with killer riffs, pounding guitars, and growling vocals from Louie that are a near religious experience.”

“The new single “I Want Fire” from Calgary duo Miesha & The Spanks is a growling stick of dynamite. For fans of Wanton Bishops, White Stripes, and/or Illiterate Light this lusty ode to rekindling some ‘fire’ (of varying definitions) will feel right at home on their pedal-to-the-metal playlists.”

“Echoing a reckless desire to feel something wild, this single combines the party attitude of Joan Jett with the guitar music-loving of Halestorm. ‘I Want Fire’ is positively demonic, full of life and perfect for anyone after a classic sounding hard-rock headbanger.”

“It’s the latest track from her forthcoming Singles EP, which is set for an April 16 release, and it is a heatseeker of a hit — a brief, bombastic, blast of white hot melodicism… It’s one of seven fuzzy, crunchy numbers that are featured on Singles EP, which was recorded by producer Leeroy Stagger. And yes, on all of the tracks, Miesha and the Spanks bring the heat.”

“I Want Fire es lo último de la banda canadiense Miesha & The Spanks. La fuerza de esta banda es maravillosa. El poder de las voces femeninas siempre es increíble cuando las organizas con la fuerza tremenda de guitarras y batería, algo que pasa en esta canción, la cual consigue todo un viaje de intensidad en lo que oferta, logrando llamar la atención de nuestras piernas y animándonos a destruirlas con saltos, que se basan en la fuerza de esta agrupación, que se adhiere al garaje rock para expresarnos todo con la naturalidad más tenaz que podrás encontrar entre algunas canciones de esta lista.”

“You need to turn your volume all the way up for this next track! Miesha and The Spanks bring you a fast and furious track that will burn your socks right off your feet! The new track is titled I Want Fire and yes…the name speaks for itself. Miesha and The Spanks bring you a thrilling punk rock song that just spews flames across the void. I am enjoying the fast taste from the band while Miesha burns her voice onto the main track. The song is very fun to jam and easily one of my favorites for this year!”

“We’ve got another new one from Miesha & the Spanks up on FTS – and this one’s a garage punk banger! Turn it up.”

“With a straightforward approach to garage rock, Miesha & The Spanks release the third single off their forthcoming Singles EP, keep using the genre's formulas to their absolute benefit, and coming up with direct and impressive performances.”
