Miesha & The Spanks are back with their new single “The Girls Are O.K.”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“The Girls Are O.K.” is an anthemic rock track about the progress that’s been made with gender division among younger generations, while recognizing there’s still work to be done.
On the song, Miesha said:
I wrote our new single “The Girls Are O.K.,” while in my third trimester this summer, expecting twins— no idea what their gender would be. At the same time I was scheduling this year’s Girls Rock Camp in Calgary.
The whole thing got me thinking about these strong, weird, cool girls that I get to work with every year and watch grow, and how if I ended up with two baby girls, I wouldn’t be worried about or for them at all, because the girls from camp were already light years ahead of where I was at their age.
They’re so brave and they already know they don’t have to take any bullshit— something I learned much later in life.
They’re going to be more than okay – they’re going to be great.
Based in Treaty 7 Territory, have been making a name for themselves as Calgary’s louder-than-you-might-think, non-stop touring machines. Miesha created The Spanks back in 2008 as a means to control her destiny— a specific brand of rock grown from her punk rock roots and nurtured by her own experiences and story-telling, and a career heavy in touring and vinyl. No more band break-ups and lost songs — Miesha & The Spanks would do what it wanted as long as Miesha had the fever.
