#36 METHYL ETHYL: Are You Haunted?

OK, again, I’m not 100% sure who this band are. They made the 2019 list after I’d spent the entire year thinking they were someone else. I have no idea how I got into this band, I have no idea where they came from, I have no idea why I ever got that last album. Are they haunted? Is this some spooky shit going down? Did METHYL ETHYL die, on this very night, on this very spot, ten years ago today? Also, have they always stylised their name IN CAPITALS like that? I’m not gonna lie, I’m scared.

What I do know though, is that these mysterious Aussies (to a British person, aren’t all Australians a little mysterious? Like, why are they like that?) just keep producing banger after banger after banger after banger. ‘Are You Haunted’ is perhaps even poppier than their last album – which, I feel I must stress, is absolutely a good thing – and is full of standout tracks.

And the absolute highlight of their fourth album also features Stella Donnelly, because there’s only a handful of Australians and they all must know each other, which ties in nicely to the wider…

Hmm? What’s that you say?

Aye? But…? What??

This review calls Stella a “former bandmember”?! But… is that true?? I can’t find any other sources that back that up! METHYL ETHEL!! What other secrets are you hiding from me?!?!

Comrade Donnelly!
