CABLE TIES – ” Tell Them Where to Go “

Cable Ties are frenetic lead lines tethered to a hypnotic rhythm section. They take the 3 minute punk burner and stretch it past breaking point. Suddenly the garage rock gives way as primitive boogie, kraut and post-punk take things way out to the horizon.

We are all over the moon to let you know that we’ve joined the family at the remarkable Merge Records. We have long admired their journey from bedroom cassette-dubbing syndicate to beloved independent icons. We made a little playlist of our fave Merge bands to celebrate – Couldn’t ask for a dreamier bunch to work with on our future releases to the big wide world.
Our first love – Fitzroy filth-rock factory poison city records – is still our home here in Oz & NZ.

Fusing riot-grrrl energy with an unmistakable garage-rock urgency, Cable Ties have gone far beyond a well-kept Melbourne secret and have long since evolved into a national treasure. The power trio deliver brisk drums, churning bass and piercing post-punk guitar to meld with vocalist Jenny McKechnie’s defiant, resonant vocals and lyricism. Describing the end result as “smouldering feminist anthems,” the band’s must-see live show has endeared them to audiences both nationally and internationally.

The single, “Tell Them Where to Go” is out now on Merge Records
