Ground Control Touring Welcomes Cable Ties

Posted 12/11/2019

Ground Control Touring is excited to announce Cable Ties to our roster!

Cable Ties are a fierce, tense rock’n’roll trio. They take the three minute punk burner and stretch it past breaking point to deliver smouldering feminist anthems. Post-punk and garage rock hammered together by a relentless rhythmic pulse. 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 hammering out a bedrock for McKechnie’s guitar pyrotechnics and vocal wallop. Three friends summoning a rhythmic tide to deliver anthems that turn latent anxieties into a rallying cry. The band has been committed to an inclusive feminist and political outlook since its inception in 2015, exploring issues of gendered violence, colonial-ism and sexual assault. The band members have been involved in benefit shows, organised DIY festivals and volunteer with Girls Rock!, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to empower female, trans and gender non-binary youth in music.
