From the opening moments of Far Enough, it’s clear Cable Ties have expanded the scope. Back after sweeping awards and acclaim with their self-titled debut, Far Enough’s opener foregrounds Jenny McKechnie’s indomitable vocal range before crashing into the punk rock proper.

Returning to the well of leftist politics and lyrical acuity, Cable Ties’ platform kicks pricks both at the top end of town and laterally, positing that radical structural change starts with community. This manifests on record as personal, heartfelt songs balancing unleashed fury. Rarely has a band sounded so self-assured and comfortable bringing in new ideas. It’s a rallying cry worth rallying around.

Far Enough  by Cable Ties is out March 27 via Poison City.
