Cable Ties pull no punches on their new single ‘Tell Them Where to Go‘ leaning closer to mid-70s riff worship than the early post-punk influences of their debut LP.

Premiering ahead of their run on Laneway Festival starting this week, the four-minutes of rock ‘n’ roll swagger and punk sneer was inspired by spending time volunteering and playing at Girls Rock! camps in Melbourne and Canberra – a week long camp dedicated to helping young women, trans and non binary folk play music, form bands and build confidence.

There’s still plenty of Cable Ties rhythmic chug and bristling intent here but it’s tougher and more focused than before and features backing vocals from a gang of music mates including rising Melbourne powerhouse Hexdebt.

Guitar pyro-technician and lead singer Jenny McKechnie says

It’s about ignoring everyone who tells you that you can’t play music because you don’t fit Western society’s expectations of who can be a ‘rockstar’ – an attractive white, straight, cisgendered man. It’s about finding new heroes who reflect your life experiences and learning how to tell your own story through rock!
