I’m Miesha Louie – guitarist and vocalist of Calgary’s garage-rock duo Miesha & The Spanks. We’ve been touring Canada pretty non-stop over the last decade, sharing the stage with DFA 1979, C’mon, Pack AD- even Queens Of The Stone Age. Our new record Girls Girls Girls is coming out this spring, and today we are so excited to share the first single from that album with you- Atmosphere!
We recorded Girls Girls Girls in the UK mid-tour last year with Danny Farrant of punk rock legends The Buzzcocks. Atmosphere is one of two songs off the full length record that we’d been performing live leading up to studio time. We definitely had fun recording it because of that! Our bratty dance moves in the chorus “oh ohs” were dialed in pretty tight.
Hear and share Atmosphere now via SoundCloud.
In Atmosphere I’m writing about how great it is early in love when it’s still sort of a secret – no one’s business and nobody else matters. That’s one of the funnest times in love! I wrote the music first, which isn’t usually how it goes for me, so the story needed to match a sort of sing-a-long, power-pop chorus and sexy, finger wagging riff. I especially love playing Atmosphere live because I get to catch that moment where everyone dips into the chorus with me, heads and hips shaking. It’s the best.
Girls Girls Girls is a fast, nasty, sexy slab of riff-fuelled Runaways rock clad in spit-polished black leather and bursting with sass and singalong swagger. It comes out this spring and we can’t wait for you to hear it!
Listen to an advance stream of the record here. (for your ears only)
Thank you so much to New Noise Magazine for premiering Atmosphere and thank you for checking it out. Below are a bunch of upcoming shows that we’re playing in support of Girls Girls Girls across Canada. Come party with us!
