Methyl Ethel - Ubu

Methyl Ethel - Ubu
Methyl Ethel have announced details of their new album, Everything Is Forgotten, to be released Friday 3rd March via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.

The band have also shared new single 'Ubu' with an Australian first play on triple j Mornings with Zan Rowe, an international first play with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 and a video premiere via Paper Magazine.

'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.

About this track...

Following ‘No. 28’ is ‘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.
