Presents new video 'Ubu' and announce new album 'Everything Is Forgotten'.
Methyl Ethel have announced details of their new album, Everything Is Forgotten, alongside a new track and video, plus European and North American tour dates.
Released on 3rd March, Everything Is Forgotten is a vivid, compelling and mysterious creature, all sinewy, curvaceous pop nuggets and enigmatic currents.
Written and recorded by Perth-based frontman Jake Webb, the album was brought to life by acclaimed British producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals).
As demonstrated by last year’s single ‘No. 28.’, the pair’s collaboration has infused Methyl Ethel’s shoegaze dream-pop palate with electronic and polyrhythmic flourishes, allowing Webb’s keening, gender-fluid vocals and searing poetry to take centre stage.
Following ‘No. 28’ is ‘Ubu’, a frenetic pop song inspired by Alfred Jarry’s surrealist play
A self-portrait of self-flagellation and guilt, its companion video, directed by Paxi,
takes some of its absurdist cues from Jarry.
Methyl Ethel will leave their native Australia for the northern hemisphere this Spring, with the quartet – Jake Webb plus bassist Thom Stewart, drummer Chris Wright and Hamish Rahn on keys and guitar – beginning their two month tour at Oslo, London on 1st March.
