Our new favourite song (although our barber is not quite so keen), this beauty from Aussie band Methyl Ethel has such a great bassline, neat guitar hooks and a superb chorus, all melding together in a frenzy at the end.
Taken from the forthcoming album Everything Is Forgotten, it’s an eccentric sound that reminds us in some ways of Metronomy, with just the right balance between bonkers and brilliance that you might also find from Joseph Mount and his crew. The video too is pure performance art.
Catch them live with upcoming dates in London (1 March), Leeds (2), Glasgow (3), Manchester (4), Nottingham (5) and Brighton (7).
The Perth-based band will be hitting the UK again in June as European tour support for POND, doing shows in Brighton (15 June), London (16), Leeds (17), Glasgow (19), Manchester (20), and Bristol (21).
