Lockdowns may have stopped them in 2021, but fierce, tense rock’n’roll trio Cable Ties are heading north this year!
With post-punk and garage rock hammered together by a relentless rhythmic pulse, Cable Ties take the three-minute punk burner and stretch it past breaking point to deliver smouldering feminist anthems. Jenny McKechnie channels her struggles into songs that resonate deeply, giving voice to feelings often buried in modern life. Shauna Boyle and Nick Brown are a rhythm section anchored in Stooges primitivism – relentlessly pounding out a bedrock for McKechnie’s guitar pyrotechnics and vocal wallop. These three friends summon a rhythmic tide to deliver anthems that turn latent anxieties into a rallying cry.
With support from Darwin’s own post-punk outfit, born out of unbridled energy, feminist rebellion, and all things in between – The Ovulators.
Bursting onto the eclectic Darwin live scene three years ago The Ovulators create a wall of indie-pop rock that get audiences writhing around the dancefloor, sweating and dancing like there is no tomorrow. For there is no tomorrow. Once you hear what this band has to say about the state of the world, you will never be the same.
