WATCH ‘Twilight Driving’

Borne out of the remote fringes of Perth, Western Australia, linchpin Jake Webb started Methyl Ethel in 2013 as a way of getting his bedroom recordings out in the public domain. Like 4AD peers Grimes and Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound), Oh Inhuman Spectacle was crafted in isolation where Webb wrote, played and recorded everything, with fellow Perth residents Chris Wright (drums) and Thom Stewart (bass) recruited to bring the songs to life on stage.

METHYL ETHEL OH INHUMAN SPECTACLE OUT NOW

“A highly promising debut.” Q

“Plays like a brain chemistry experiment gone horribly right.” Rolling Stone

“Methyl Ethel makes dream-pop for insomniacs – shadowy, nocturnal music whose surface shimmer barely conceals the fidgety, restless soul lurking underneath.” Pitchfork
