OK I told myself I wasn’t going to gush about Cable Ties again but, c’mon, the band are back with a great new single inspired by their work with the Girls Rock Camp. The single is a goosebumps-inducing rocker that shoves the boys’ club in the corner and encourages girls to pick up and play with no mind to the detractors or nagging self-doubt. As usual the cornerstone of the track is Jenny McKechnie’s vocals, a weapon any band would be lucky to have at their disposal. Pretty much anything she’s singing about becomes a rallying cry, but in this case the subject matter and the system of delivery match in their buoyant blast. The track itself is amped up on chewed wire, spitting voltage in thick slabs through speakers and headphones alike. Much more than a stopgap single, this is exactly the kind of track that drew me to the band in the first place. It was available as an exclusive 7” at the band’s recent Cable Ties Ball, but should also show up in full form on Poison City as a digital single.
