Australian garage rock trio Cable Ties have shared ‘Thoughts Back,’ the latest single from their upcoming album All Her Plans, outJune 23 via Merge Records.
Featuring drummer Shauna Boyle’s first turn on lead vocals, ‘Thoughts Back’ is a potent expression of the unique frustrations associated with mental illness, especially as it pertains to self-care and caring for others.
“I wrote this song mostly centred around my own experiences with mental illness and how consuming and overwhelming it was, and is, for countless people around the world,” Boyle says. “It also plays into the themes of the record, such as care-giving and mental workload. So often people give up their own lives to help others and as a result, rarely have their voices, their experiences or their history acknowledged.”
