IIRC I've posted an EP by Mystica Girls last year this day, and now it's time to post another EP by an all-female band that isn't particularly well known. This time it won't be metal, though.

Misgive are 4 girls from Kota Kinabalu - the capital of Sabah (the easternmost state of Malaysia). Their music is typical pop-punk which is played by a lot of young bands all around the Western world, but I never heard anything like that from Southeastern Asia yet. They're virtually unknown outside their home region, but recently they got some publicity here, mostly due to our local J-rock / J-punk communities. I personally never was a big fan of pop-punk or J-rock, but all these simplistic yet catchy songs on this EP remind me of the late 70's punk which I used to post here circa 2010-2011.

As for the "short skirts" part - the girls themselves definitely like it a lot, judging from their stage outfits designed for them by Afraid Clothing. It's hard not to notice that their outfits are extremely short, and I like it this way too :)

The official page for this EP is here, and if you want to have a free download of it, it probably won't be hard to find.
