618 “Hope” by Cable Ties
8·5 “Excellent Post-Punk from Australia”
From their album “Far Enough” released in March, 2020.
– In the presser, lead singer Jenny McKechnie says: “it’s about the importance of getting hope back, even when you can see no logical reason to have it. Without hope, anger becomes despair or bitterness.” Wise words. Feels like 2 songs for the price of 1 from the Melbourne trio, both terrific, the punky second half getting more and more determined on the hopeful journey. “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.”
