Melbourne group Cable Ties are frenetic lead lines tethered to a hypnotic rhythm section. Welding punk ferocity to kraut and boogie they stretch songs past breaking point, searching for that joyous rush. Jenny McKechnie channels her struggles into songs that resonate beyond like-minded punks and give voice and language to feelings deeply burrowed into modern existence. 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.
