Triage, the third album by Methyl Ethel. Written, produced and performed by lead singer Jake Webb, mixed by Marta Salogni and mastered by Heba Kadry, Triage was recorded in Webb’s home studio in West Perth, Australia.

With the creation of this album, Webb felt a sense of closure – completing the triptych of his three releases.  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.

Methyl Ethel is the musical project of Jake Webb which expands to a five-piece live band that includes Thom Stewart, Chris Wright, Lyndon Blue and Jacob Diamond.   Methyl Ethel has enjoyed phenomenal successes over the last year.  In Australia, ‘Ubu’ (the hit single from second album Everything Is Forgotten) became an ARIA Accredited Gold single .  The band has clocked up over 46 million streams on Spotify alone and sold out shows in Australia and the UK.

“One of Australia’s most essential current bands.” – Paste
Methyl Ethel is one of Australia’s weirdest, most beguiling bands, with its endlessly creative frontman Jake Webb nimbly leaping between sounds that draw upon classic pop, shoegaze, and R&B.”  – Consequence of Sound
“Choc-a-bloc with hooks and head-nodding electro-pop from the get-go, Methyl Ethel have reached great new heights with this stellar effort.” – NME
“Their finest work yet.” – The Line of Best Fit
“Quite dazzling.” – DIY Magazine

‘Trip the Mains’ is the new single taken from Methyl Ethel’s new album ‘Triage’ out on 4AD Records on February 15th 2019,
