Das neue Jahr ist gerade mal wenige Tage alt und Australiens CABLE TIES drücken 2020 direkt ihren Stempel auf, denn: Das Trio kündigt sein energisches zweites Album „Far Enough“ für den 27. März bei Merge Records an, geben Tourdates bekannt und veröffentlichen außerdem das Musikvideo zum Song „Sandcastles“!

Die Regie führte hier Danny Cohen (COURTNEY BARNETT, KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD, MAC DEMARCO). Das Video passt zu CABLE TIES perfekter, traditioneller Herangehensweise an Punkrock. „Sandcastles“ feierte in Australiens Triple-J-Radio Premiere.

Danny Cohen über seine Annäherung an das „Sandcastles“-Video:
I wanted the message of “Sandcastles” to be as clear and direct as possible. To achieve this, I wanted to strip this music video to its bare bones, free from distraction. We removed the colour and shot limited takes on black-and-white 16mm. We decided to not shoot wides and to hide their instruments, instead narrowing the audience’s focus on the delivery of the message directly from Jenny, Shauna, and Nick’s faces.Jenny McKechnie über die Thematik des Songs:
‚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. 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 behaviour 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.
