Melbourne punk trio Cable Ties have released a powerful new song, “Hope.”
Vocalist and guitarist Jenny McKechnie kicks the track off alone, but what starts out a vulnerable torch song soon morphs into a fierce rock opus.
“This song is about losing hope and the importance of getting it back, even when you can see no logical reason to have it,” McKechnie said in a statement. “Without hope, anger becomes despair or bitterness.”
“Hope” is the latest preview of Cable Ties’ upcoming album, Far Enough. It’s also the song, McKechnie says, that distinguishes Far Enough from their 2017 self-titled record. “I’m no longer righteously angry, looking out and shouting at the world,” she explained. “I start looking at myself and sometimes I don’t like what I see.”
Far Enough is out March 27 via Poison City/Merge. Listen to “Hope” below:
