Meisha & The Spanks recently released “Mom Jeans // Mom Genes,” the latest single off their album Unconditional Love in Hi-Fi available April 14, 2023 via Mint Records (Dumb, Naduwar, Kamikaze Nurse). The duo will be playing at this year’s New Colossus Festival, in New York NY.

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.”

This song delves into that universal desire to return to a golden age of nostalgia and reclaim our old young bodies. A frustration that is best expressed with a rebel yell – oft heard from the dressing room – and the acknowledgement that we have outgrown our former identities and the physical manifestations thereof. Ladies (and gentlemen), I give you ‘Mom Jeans // Mom Genes’, Miesha & The Spanks’ heartfelt homage to the dangerous curves life can throw at you.

“The adjustment and the struggle to accept that adjustment is heavy. Like most of my music, writing Mom Jeans // Mom Genes was a way for me to process all of those feelings, whether or not there was any conclusion to be reached,” Louie shares about this honest record.
