Hailing from Calgary, Miesha & The Spanks have a new pop garage rock single, "The Girls Are O.K." It's a great mixture of the dirty sound of garage rock and the shimmering sound of pop. It's a fun, celebratory song that reminds me of Carissa Johnson & the Cure-Alls. According to Miesha:
"I wrote “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."
