Politically-driven punk trio Cable Ties have gained an international following since forming in 2015 and have proven hugely influential in their hometown Melbourne music scene. Following the recent release of Cable Ties' third album All Her Plans, the band's Jenny McKechnie shares some of her current favourite Australian sounds on Australian Music Is Bloody Great.

Moody Beaches - Only Us


This is off Moody Beaches' new album, Acid Ocean. Their launch at the Nightcat [in Melbourne] was totally mind blowing. Definitely go see them live if you get a chance.

Naretha Williams - Kairotic


Maxine Gillon - Genuflect


I caught Maxine at the Tramway Hotel the other afternoon and I've really enjoyed digging into her latest EP, Ultra Lounge, ever since.

Miss Kaninna - Blak Britney


I only discovered this one recently and have been unable to turn it off ever since. There is a language warning with this one if you've got little ears around.

Cable Ties - Crashing Through


This is our latest single.
