Methyl Ethel announce their third album Triage, released on 15th February 2019. Following on from instant classic ‘Scream Whole’, they have shared new single ‘Real Tight’ along with the official video directed by Matt Sav. Watch below!
Triage was written, produced and performed by lead singer Jake Webb. The album was recorded in Jake’s home studio in West Perth and mixed at Mute Studio in London with Marta Salogni. With his 30th birthday, and the ceremonial cap on three records and three EP’s, Webb felt a sense of closure in the making of Triage.
Methyl Ethel has always been a surrealist outfit, a dark and obscured expression of life set to the backdrop of dream pop hooks. But Triage is a more reflective album – one that explores the notion of coming of age, only to reference it for the snapshots and passing memories that it has become.
Methyl Ethel is the musical project of Jake Webb. As a live band it expands to a five piece and includes Thom Stewart, Chris Wright, Lyndon Blue and Jacob Diamond. Triage will be available on black, white and blue vinyl, cassette tape, CD and digitally via download and DSPs. Links to pre-order all formats here.
