Press Quotes

“The song is both a lament of just how difficult it is not to be part of the majority in any place in the world but also a defiant celebration of one’s roots. There’s plenty of understanding out there, as there is plenty of irrational hatred. More than any time, it is punk rock’s duty to try and make some sense of both of these.”

“‘Mixed Blood Girls’ offers Runaways-style a garage punk with a hard-hitting lyrical message.”

"Mixed Blood Girls is a song that will blow your brains, with this we all tell you. Destructive elegance has never been as perfect as in this song.”

“… powerful track based on guitarist/vocalist Miesha Louie’s Indigenous heritage. Sounds like an anthem in the making… big things seem on the horizon.”

“It’s got a raw punk rock feel to it that just goes all in right from the start with a triumphant and unadulterated sound you can mosh to at any time. What’s more is that the lyrics have a more commanding presence than any in a song of recent memory. It’s a statement track you need to be hearing right now.”

“This duo definitely ‘bring the heat’ with rock encompassing punk, garage, and hard rock. You know what that means? They’re not afraid to get down, dirty, and flat-out noisy… If you need a hard rocking joint with meaningful writing behind it, then “Mixed Blood Girls” is your cup or tea, or whatever your preferred drink is! Miesha and the Spanks definitely impress with the narrative, sound, and the ‘vibe’ established.”

“We've been loving Miesha & The Spanks' take on garage rock for a while, but their latest single truly ramps up the edge and aggression. Typically their songs are fun, and while "Mixed Blood Girls" isn't a great fun rock song, the lyrics bite much harder than we're used to from the Canadian duo.”

“A brutal examination of race and identity, Miesha and the Spanks’ latest single is raw, fierce and defiant. ‘Mixed Blood Girls’ sees Miesha Louie channel her rage, her sadness and her generational trauma into a pure, unadulterated garage punk thrash.”
