Cables was originally formed by four hometown gals from outside Oslo, Norway, with a simple mission of playing rock'n'roll. Equipped with singer Inger’s incredible edged vocal range, they soon realized they'd never sound like a wimpy girl band, even if they tried. Silje's lead guitar prowess and natural sense for melody kept the band plugging away and releasing singles like "Keep On" and "I'm Still Here". When it was time to hit the road, they gave it their heart and soul-winning the Zoom award (Norway's best unsigned live band) in 2007, touring the country from north to south, doing a Johnny-Cash like Norweigan Prison tour and playing the strangest places along with a lot of festivals.
But after releasing their debut album in 2009 "Same Places, Same Faces", garnishing rip-roaring reviews-- including praise from rock journalist Harald Fossberg in Aftenposten-- a year passed with only a quiet buzz lingering. And cult fans in very strange places. Psychics were employed, galoshes of Seidal were drunk, dices thrown, and a few members went separate ways. A hiatus then ensued.
Finally, in 2012, after breaking a long silence, Cables emerged with new impetus. They resumed gigging with fresh blood from members of Cocktail Slippers, Upstrokes and Bloodlights, and newfound energy. But most importantly, in the shrouds of secrecy, they recorded an album. (And rumors say it’s gonna be kick ass!) Produced by the magical fingers of Tommy Akherholt (Tommy Manboy of Turbonegro, Silver and Serena Maneesh), the young, inexperienced girls you once remembered are no longer everybody's little sisters. Set for release in January 2013, Cables return to us now with determination, maturity, and a rock ethos like you've never heard before.
