Methyl Ethel harness their inner Droog in the clip for new single, Ubu
From their new album, Everything Is Forgotten, due March 3.
Methyl Ethel at the Rosemount Hotel in Perth last year was probably in my top five gigs for the year. Having never seen them live I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised at the upbeat, at-times quite dance-heavy set they rolled out to a full house of incredibly appreciative fans. It was a show that also had me very excited for new music from them, and following on from last single No. 28, today comes Ubu, the second taste of their upcoming sophomore album, Everything Is Forgotten.
The track itself all about that funky as hell bassline. Oof. No one is making more accomplished indie-pop in Australian than this trio from Perth right now. Can't wait for them album, but until then we'll just keep getting lost in this trippy video clip, with their outfits carrying some serious A Clockwork Orange vibes, minus the raping and pillaging (thankfully).
