From a one-man project to a trio: Exciting debut album by the shooting stars from Australia

Jake Webb formed Methyl Ethel in 2013 as a bedroom project in Perth. He released two EPs, "Guts" and "Teeth", and played various gigs in bars in Western Australia. Quite unexpectedly, Methyl Ethel won the Australian WAM Award for Best Pop Song of the Year in 2014 with "Rogues" and just one year later with "Twilight Diving"

As the one-man-project got more and more attention, Webb was looking for more musicians in early 2015 to realize his idea of a real live show. He found them in Chris Wright (drums) and Thom Stewart (bass), two good friends from the local scene. Later that year, Methyl Ethel's debut album was released, initially on the indie label Dot Dash/Remote Control. Webb played all the instruments himself. Only in the arrangement and mixing of the songs he was supported by Wright

During New York's CMJ festival, the Australian trio's energetic show not only wowed media from "Rolling Stone" to "Guardian", but also the British label 4AD. The label will release "Oh Inhuman Spectacle" worldwide in 2016.
