Methyl Ethel Come Clean On “Honest”

After last year’s Triage the Australian band Methyl Ethel are back with a five-track strong EP. Our daily tune Honest is part of Hurts to Laugh, and fits into the pained tongue-in-cheek existentialism of the EP. Jake Webb releases his demons singing “now I am coming clean / now I am coming out” aching with every letter of the lyrics. The dynamic shifts of the single highlight the dramatic turns and fill the space either with restrained instrumentation or with the chorus loaded with multiple layers, however, the vocals provide the frame in which Methyl Ethel created a cohesive track. Honest is a vulnerable single that touches on the notion that everybody is always hiding something.
