Review - Cable Ties

pepper - june 17

 
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE the power of a humble cable tie, nor the power of Melbourne three-piece band, Cable Ties. 
 
While they may be new to the music scene, their debut self-titled album, Cable Ties, delivers exactly what you would expect from the trio: powerfully tense punk-rock no amount of cable ties could keep under control. 
 
The powerhouse includes Jennie McKechnie on vocals/guitar, Nick Brown on bass and Shaunna Boyle on drums.
  
Together Cable Ties attack all kinds of cringe-worthy topics like capitalist propaganda, music industry tastemakers and straight up creeps beautifully crafted over eight venomous tracks. 
 
Take their 6 minute and35-second single Say What You Mean for example.
 
Jumping from commanding screams to sharply spoken lyrics, there’s no reading between the lines. 
 
While each track may be long, Cable Ties don’t muck around.
 
Its sharp messages are clear and the beats are fierce.
