Methyl Ethel

  • The Live Feed :: Methyl Ethel at Oxford Art Factory

All this month, we’re featuring a dark, dreamy, danceable set from Perth’s Methyl Ethel.

After dropping their hotly awaited second album ‘Everything Is Forgotten’ earlier this year, the three piece turned four – adding a keyboard player to their frenetic live set up.  Frontman Jake Webb’s keening, gender-fluid vocals took centre stage at Oxford Art Factory, as the band’s elastic basslines and gothic synth-pop stylings filled the dancefloor. Yes, the show sold out, but that doesn’t mean you miss out… We were there to record their full live set!
