Little Indie featured the Melbourne punks Cable Ties last year with the feisty 'Say What You Want'.
The three are equally on fire with latest single 'Tell Them Where To Go', digitally released via Poison City on February 2 (with a limited edition two-song 7” available exclusively at the Cable Ties Ball on February 24 at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne).
The four minutes of rock 'n' roll swagger with a punk sneer and typical Cable Ties toughness was inspired by spending time volunteering and playing at Girls Rock! camps in Melbourne and Canberra - a week long camp dedicated to helping young women, trans and non binary folk play music, form bands and build confidence.
Lead singer Jenny McKechnie says of the track: "It's about ignoring everyone who tells you that you can't play music because you don't fit Western society's expectations of who can be a 'rockstar' - an attractive white, straight, cisgendered man. It's about finding new heroes who reflect your life experiences and learning how to tell your own story through rock!"
