Methyl Ethel, the brainchild of musical polymath Jake Webb, has shared a new single and accompanying video for ‘Drink Wine’. The bold track opens Methyl Ethel’s second studio album, Everything Is Forgotten, released via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.
Directed by Paxi (behind the surrealism-flavoured visuals for ‘Ubu’) and filmed in Sydney, Australia, ‘Drink Wine’ is the Perth-based outfit’s fourth single. Watch the video in full via the image below.
Methyl Ethel are currently the 3rd most played artist on triple j for 2017 and have sold out every tour date since 2016 with over 7,500 tickets in 2017 alone – including a ten date sold out album tour and a spot on Groovin’ The Moo 2017. The band are currently in the middle of a run of European dates with fellow Perth band POND. After appearances at Boardmasters, Lowlands and Green Man festivals, Methyl Ethel will head to North America for Austin City Limits and to open for The Drums in November.

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
