Miesha & The Spanks release ‘Singles EP’ today
Miesha and The Spanks consist of group members Miesha Louie and Sean Hamilton. Today, they release Singles EP.
Statement from Miesha about Singles EP
I hope these songs hit home for some people. Not feeling alone in our experiences, especially right now, is so important. As a new mom, I was already feeling a distance from my old life of never-ending rock shows and closing down after-hours bars with friends. We hadn’t toured since my pregnancy, and then we all got hit by a pandemic. It left a lot of time to think about where I was and how I got there, and here, and who I am and how it’s been going.
Singles EP is my second album recorded with Sean, and it’s some of the best stuff we’d been working on. We have great chemistry, both writing and spending way too much time in vans together, and I hope that comes across on this album.
Miesha statement about the featured track “I Used To Care (I Don’t Care)
I went through the same thing when I started, for years. You might not make a huge dent, in fact, the odds are against you. Eventually, you have to stop caring and just keep going and do it for yourself. I close the song out with one of my favourite Aretha Franklin lines, ‘Sisters are doin’ it for themselves — because we are.
February 12 – Official Video for “I Want Fire” from Miesha & The Spanks

Miesha discusses making the video on Lower Kananaskis Lake in Alberta
The drone took forever to get moving, and either the cables connecting my phone to the stereo, or the batteries in the stereo itself froze, and we could not get the music to play for longer than the intro to the song. It was freezing, so we had to make a fast decision! Sean wore earbuds and played along to the song, and I just had to follow him as best I could, trying to mimic exactly where I should be in the song, without actually hearing it. When we realized the gravity of our situation we decided three takes would have to do, but I think we made it to six or seven. It must have been the bourbon and the adrenaline.
