Miesha & The Spanks are a high-octane, garage-rock duo from Calgary AB, made up of rock ‘n’ roll matriarch Miesha Louie and her partner in crime, the hardest-hitting Sean Hamilton on drums. Their latest track, “Unstoppable,” can be streamed here.
“Miesha & The Spanks have always moved fast and been ready to go—with releases, tour dates, and festivals,” the band explains. “We’ve always had a strong and steady momentum.
“Last year I decided to procreate, and we had to modify a lot of our routine. We played Great Escape and Focus Wales in the U.K. five months into the pregnancy and left the summer for writing and recording—which was a bad idea because I was having twins, and my brain pretty much turned itself off. Slowing down felt crazy! I wrote ‘Unstoppable’ while talking myself back into that hustle, getting back on my feet, and reminding myself of what I do every day.
“I hope this song hits home if you’ve been feeling a little lethargic after months of quarantine. I hope it encourages you to shake off any cobwebs and slide back into what you do best—or better yet, go hard for something that until now has only been a daydream. To put yourself out there and take that huge leap—that’s the stuff that dreams are made of.”
