Cable Ties

Cable Ties are a fierce, tense rock’n’roll trio. They take the three minute punk burner and stretch it past breaking point to deliver smouldering feminist anthems. Post-punk and garage rock hammered together by a relentless rhythmic pulse. Jenny McKechnie channels her struggles into songs that resonate deeply, giving voice to feelings often buried in modern life. Shauna Boyle and Nick Brown are a rhythm section anchored in Stooges primitivism – relentlessly hammering out a bedrock for McKechnie’s guitar pyrotechnics and vocal wallop. Three friends summoning a rhythmic tide to deliver anthems that turn latent anxieties into a rallying cry.

Cable Ties released their second album Far Enough in March 2020 on Poison City in Australia/New Zealand and renowned US label Merge Records for the rest of the world. It has been covered by Rolling Stone US,, NPR, The Age, The Monthly and elsewhere. Far Enough won Best Rock/Punk Album at the 2020 Music Victoria Awards.
