METHYL ETHEL

METHYL ETHEL

AUSTRALIA

A band steeped in innovation and quicksilver melodies, Perth’s Methyl Ethel have been the act in everyone’s ear of late. Led by Jake Webb, who many describe as the natural heir to Kevin Parker’s throne of genius, these supernatural sandgropers have mastered their own brand of musical mysticism. You’ll know their singles by now: the persistent and hypnotic Ubu with it’s unforgettable lyrical hook of “why’d you have to go and cut your hair”, the smooth saxophone featuring Twilight Driving or the latest salvo Drink Wine. Signed to prestigious label 4AD worldwide (label mates Bon Iver, Grime, The National), Methyl Ethel are at the forefront of a worldwide charge in experimental Australian pop music.

The Falls Music & Arts Festival is back in Western Australia! With Fremantle’s Kings Square redevelopment in full swing, the second ever rendition of Falls Downtown has a new but even more exciting home in Fremantle! Falls Downtown 2018 will be taking over the Fremantle Oval Precinct and once again will be incorporating and reimagining historic sites, streets, carparks and buildings to delight, entertain and inspire our audiences and artists! Our unique passouts policy will also continue to retain free flowing access to all of Fremantle’s many delights during the weekend of Jan 06 and Jan 07 –  Fremantle Markets, cafes, restaurants, retailers, artisans, tourist sites, the port, Bathers Beach and more.
