Praise for Everything Is Forgotten

Feature Album – triple j

Feature Album – RTR FM

“Methyl Ethel’s second record is full of these moments, these inescapably artful, musical chess moves.” – Herald Sun, ★★★★★

“Main man Jake Webb has brewed up slippery melodies and dextrous rhythms across 11 enigmatic yet engaging tracks, polished in London by James Ford … and poised to make Methyl Ethel our most addictive export since Tame Impala.” – The West Australian, ★★★★

“…Webb has stepped up his songwriting enough to stand on his own.” – Rolling Stone Australia

“Webb describes the title as coming to him in a dream, but it could just as easily be a nod toward the power of this record demanding your full attention insisting you forget everything else.” – 4ZZZ

Methyl Ethel, the brainchild of musical polymath Jake Webb, have announced an Australian tour kicking off this November in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide. Full tour details and ticket links below.

Methyl Ethel have been making waves, selling out every headline show in the country since 2016 and topping the album and singles charts (for ‘Ubu’ and ‘Drink Wine’). The third most played artist on triple j this year (ranking higher than Lorde and Kendrick Lamar), Methyl Ethel’s second album Everything Is Forgotten out via Dot Dash / Remote Control is winning over fans in the northern hemisphere, with their recent London show at Shacklewell Arms selling out in less than 24 hours.

Earlier this summer Methyl Ethel were invited by Huw Stephens to record a BBC Radio 1 session at the legendary Maida Vale studios. Listen back to the live renditions of ‘Drink Wine’, ‘Ubu’, ‘No. 28’, ‘Groundswell’ and ‘L’Heure des Sorcières’ via the BBC iPlayer. In addtion, their latest single ‘Drink Wine’ receiving heavy A-list rotation on BBC 6Music and saw them perform a session with Lauren Laverne. Watch here via BBC iPlayer.

Everything Is Forgotten is a vivid, compelling and mysterious creature; all sinewy, curvaceous pop nuggets and enigmatic currents. Written and recorded by Perth-based Webb, it was brought to life by acclaimed British producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals). The pair’s collaboration has infusedMethyl 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.
