Album Premiere: "Unconditional Love In HiFi" by Miesha & The Spanks

14 April 2023

After an incredible run of form these last few months, which has brought enormous praise and acclaim to their recent singles ‘It’s My Year’, ‘Dig Me Out’ and ‘Mom Jeans // Mom Genes’ earlier this year, Canadian duo Miesha & The Spanks are back to release their eagerly-awaited new album Unconditional Love In Hi-Fi on the 14th April, and you can hear it here first.

Bringing back more of that raucous garage-rock aesthetic they have been building for themselves since they first emerged, Unconditional Love In Hi-Fi makes for an incredible fun and vibrant listen. With the insatiable vocals of frontwoman Miesha Louie permeating every inch of this new record, driving the anthemic sound of it ever forward, they are returning with one of their most captivating offerings to date here.

Highlighted by the new lead single ‘So Mad’, the pair churn out a rip-roaring guitar-driven anthem that perfectly illustrates the cacophonous nature of this new LP. Brimming with a bold and immersive sound throughout, it’ll have you pumping your fists from start to finish.

Adding about ‘So Mad’, they said, “So Mad is about the day to day of what women deal with – from losing autonomy of our bodies as the US slowly revokes laws surrounding abortion and birth control, to being able to safely walk home at night – and the expectation that we can’t be too angry about it, and to just… smile more”

Miesha & The Spanks’ new album ‘Unconditional Love In Hi-Fi’ will be available to stream on all major DSPs from the 14th April, and will be heading to the UK for a pair of highly-anticipated live shows. Details of which can be found below.
