Aussie trio Cable Ties have announced their second album, 'Far Enough'

Cable Ties have announced their second album.

The Australian trio - Jenny McKechnie, Shauna Boyle, and Nick Brown - will release 'Far Enough' on 27th March via Merge.

The news is accompanied by a video for 'Sandcastles', and a UK tour that kicks off in April and will see them perform in Glasgow (3rd), Manchester (4th), Brighton (5th) and London (7th).

"'Sandcastles' is a criticism of the idea that an effective activist community can be created by shouting down and casting out anyone who doesn’t abide by the social norms or language of an exclusive community or group," Jenny explains.

"The song is aimed at a figurative individual who doesn’t have any interest in making positive changes in society or participating in open and productive discussions about political and social issues. Rather, they set themselves up as the gatekeepers of progressive groups by aggressively policing language and immediately casting out anyone who doesn’t abide by the codes of behavior they have created.

"This turns purportedly intersectional, progressive groups into exclusive clubs only accessible to people with homogeneous opinions, social and economic backgrounds, and ways of speaking."
