METHYL ETHEL ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM  TRIAGE OUT FEBRUARY 15TH ON 4AD

Today, Methyl Ethel have announced their new album, Triage will be released February 15th on 4AD. Today, they share the single from the forthcoming album along with the accompanying video for “Real Tight,” directed by Matt Sav. “‘Real Tight’ is one of the most pop-adjacent tracks [Webb has] ever made, complete with a swelling chorus and some of the most achingly personal lyrics in the Methyl Ethel canon,” Said Noisey. “Known for filling his verses with abstractions, ‘Real Tight’ finds Webb making things plain and simple “I cannot lie/ I don’t feel right,” he sings on the track’s chorus, a simple plea that’s striking in how forward it is, compared to earlier Methyl Ethel songs.” Triage marks the Perth, Australia band’s third album. It was written, produced and performed by lead singer Jake Webb, mixed by Marta Salogni and mastered by Heba Kadry. The album was recorded in Webb’s home studio in West Perth and is available for pre-order today.

With his thirtieth 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.
