Their new album might be called ‘Everything is Forgotten’ but we will never forget this epic video from Methyl Ethel!
Following ‘No. 28’ Methyl Ethel’s new track ‘Ubu’, a frenetic pop song inspired by Alfred Jarre’s surrealist play Ubu Roi.. A self-portrait of self-flagellation and guilt, its companion video, directed by Paxi, takes some of its absurdist cues from Jarre. The new song is taken from their new album Everything Is Forgotten (out March 3).
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.
Due to overwhelming demand a handful of tickets have been released for the band’s sold-out Australian tour. Get them here
