…got big plans, MIESHA & the SPANKS It’s My Year
by Walter Price
Year after year, resolution after resolution, and repeat…but maybe this year is your year…Your year to take the reins finally find fulfillment in whichever way feeds your soul. Quit your shitty job, sign up at that neighborhood Jiu Jitsu academy, pamper yourself a bit more, or perhaps accomplish something on your ever-expanding todo list….whichever your seemingly lofty goal(s) may be, Calgary’s Miesha and The Spanks have a brand new crunchy anthem called “It’s My Year” to nudge you in the right direction.
This better-the-louder-you crank-it single is an alt-rock blaster that comes replete with a brilliant and near-surreal music video. Watch the rocknrollers entertain at an almost lackluster yet sparkly celebration that gets cookin’ once its eclectic group of partiers realize they can go their own way, be who they wanna be, and boogie in all the newfound empowerment.
“It’s My Year” is from the forthcoming LP “Unconditional Love In Hi-Fi”, expected April 14, 2023. Before then, you can stream the single and see the Sebastian Buzzalino-filmed video, here at the GTC.

“A modern singer/guitarist and beloved fixture on the local scene, frontwoman Miesha Louie is the integral driving force behind Miesha & The Spanks. A mixed-Secwépemc artist living in Treaty 7 Territory, she’s devoted her entire career to inventing and playing instrumentally brilliant melodies that unleash her passions and her full-throated vocal tones.” – bio
