We have the Perth-born, London-based Jake Webb to thank for the stellar musical project that is Methyl Ethel.
The explorative rock outfit fronted and created by Webb possesses a feverish appeal, clocking up over 25 million Spotify streams, a Triple J charting, Aria accredited gold single in ‘Ubu’, and sell-out tours in Australia, the UK and now expanding into North America.
Strutting bass lines, spacey synths, breezy vocals and more hooks than a classroom coat rack, Methyl Ethel delivers the good times musically, whilst sneaking in a deeper level of nuance and ambiguity lyrically.
His latest album Triage marks a new level of creative exploration for Webb, but is still grounded in that classic coastal pop sound which has captured the hearts and ears of a generation. Here it live and lush when Methyl Ethel hits the stage at Lost.
