We are so excited to bring you today a video premiere from Miesha and the Spanks, the hotly anticipated (geddit?) ‘I Can’t Wait’! A big punk-pop explosion of summer joy – just as we were putting away our flipflops for the year.
“‘I Can’t Wait’ is meant to be a sweet summer jam, somewhere between a fond callback to summer shenanigans and daydreaming about what’s coming up next. We’ve got some laid-back garage beats, big gang vocals and oohs, hand claps, tambourine – good vibes are all over this one.”Miesha Louie
Something about the combination of urgent pop vocals over dirty punk guitars and happy handclaps makes me want to see Canadian Miesha and the Spanks on the same lineup at Croydon’s own Bugeye – how do we make that magic happen?
Today the single is released on beautiful handcrafted lathe cut clear vinyl via www.retarecords.com for you physical-thing-lovers (just 50 copies in the world so snaffle yours up quick!) The record also contains single ‘Dig Me Out’.
Tarry no longer, here it is in all it’s joyful garage rock glory …
Miesha Louie is a mixed-Secwépemc artist living in Treaty 7 Territory, and The Spanks are the many drummers who’ve stood beside her on stage – Sean Hamilton is her latest and longest partner,
