Methyl Ethel 'On Inhuman Spectacle' LP
New to 4AD, Australian trio Methyl Ethel’s celebrated debut album is being given a worldwide release this May.
Hailing from the remote fringes of Perth in Western Australia, and like 4AD peers Grimes and Bradford Cox before him, band linchpin Jake Webb wrote, played and recorded everything on Oh Inhuman Spectacle.
Crafted in isolation, its understated psychedelic pop quickly drew plaudits, leading Webb to recruit Chris Wright (drums) and Thom Stewart (bass) - friends from the tight-knit and thriving music scene in Perth - to help realise the songs live as a full-fledged band.
Having gained notable success in Australia including being nominated for the prestigious Australian Music Prize and taking Laneway Festival by storm, Methyl Ethel are now poised to take their music overseas with the worldwide release of Oh Inhuman Spectacle on 20th May and a huge run of touring in both Europe and North America to coincide.
