Meisha & The Spanks continue releasing with their new single ‘Mom Jeans’ out now via Mint Records. After the release of their last single ‘It’s My Year,’ Meisha & The Spanks builds up suspense for their album Unconditional Love in Hi-Fi releasing on April 14.
We experience a new side of Louie that we have not seen before in the new single ‘Mom Jeans // Mom Genes’. A primal, surging impulse that takes over your whole body like an involuntary contraction. That’s the sensation delivered by Miesha & The Spanks. Vocals as crisp and clean as a freshly laundered pair of dungarees are stitched up with a pulsating warning siren that sways with the seesaw momentum of a heavy metal pendulum. Spiraling over the yawning abyss of parenthood, singer/guitarist Miesha Louie stalks her own distorted self-image through a maternity ward of distorted guitars and percussionist Sean Hamilton’s cyclical rhythm method.
As fans of David Lynch’s 1977 cult-classic Eraserhead, OCL Studio’s Recording Engineer, Josh Rob Gwilliam, and Noah Mintz, at Lacquer Channel Mastering, knew exactly how to approach ‘Mom Jeans // Mom Genes’. Lending their support this unique expression of female energy and pride.
Louie describes the new single: “It’s more than just about the new mom-fit jeans that I’m wearing though, that’s just the metaphor. It’s also the super tough mom genes that get us through that day to day of ups and downs and emotional manipulations and breakthroughs and pure joy that come with our role as Matriarch.”
The video for the single illustrates Louie’s reality of motherhood. As the duo sings, we get an inside look of what Louie’s other part of life is like through clips of her young twins. With the punk vocals and intense bass, the duo demonstrates the parallels of their music chaos of parenthood, juggling her life as well as her kids’ needs. She sings: “Mom genes for the babe who won’t sleep at night / Mom genes for the kid who wants to put up another fight / Mom genes for the mom times that we’ve lost / Mom jeans for the mom bod that I’ve got.”
