Out today from Canadian duo Miesha & The Spanks: ‘Mixed Blood Girls’ offers Runaways-style a garage punk with a hard-hitting lyrical message. Miesha tells us:
“The track is inspired by my story as a mixed Secwépemc girl from the East Kootenays. My dark skin and white features left me open to compliments on my “beautiful tan,” and when they found out it wasn’t, I was “too pretty to be an Indian.” From ballet moms to dudes in bars, I’ve heard it all. But it isn’t all skin deep. Being mixed isn’t just about appearances and everyone’s entitled opinion about them. My story follows where I came from and where I currently stand, distanced from family and culture and often pretty isolated because of it.”
‘Mixed Blood Girls’ is the first from the duo’s upcoming EP ’Singles’, which is due out on 8th April.
