Methyl Ethel share ‘Scream Whole’; the first new music from the Perth act since their second record Everything Is Forgotten was released in March 2017.

Premiered yesterday on Australia radio station triple j’s Drive with Veronica & Lewis show, ‘Scream Whole’ is a nimble art-rock cut which Jake Webb describes as, “That cold sweat.  That swollen throat.  That sick feeling bubbling up from your guts.  When midday moves dredge suppressed memories that scream for closure.  What to do?”

The video was premiered via Consequence Of Sound – ““What’s the point/ Undo, undo again,” Webb wails against crystalline synths that electrify the senses and, upon disappearing, conjure a sense of chilly, awestruck isolation. Each word feels careful and deliberate, emerging with a concentrated effort from Webb’s mouth, which, fittingly, serves as the centerpiece of “Scream Whole‘s accompanying video. By the time the song descends into its woozy, drunken bridge, it’s stained in dirt and restrained with rope.”

Methyl Ethel is the musical project of Jake Webb with a five-piece live band that includes Thom Stewart, Chris Wright, Lyndon Blue and Jacob Diamond.  Methyl Ethel has enjoyed phenomenal success in its native Australia in recent years.  ‘Ubu’  along with fellow Everything Is Forgotten single ‘Drink Wine’.  Methyl Ethel also won in the Best Album and Best Pop Act categories in 2017

‘Scream Whole’ is the new single from Methyl Ethel. Out now on 4AD Records:
