Aussie trio Methyl Ethel turned in a solid debut effort with their far-flung yet fluid album Oh Inhuman Spectacle early this year. We haven’t heard from them since then, but today they’ve come with a new single entitled “No. 28″ along with a matching set of visuals. The song picks up where the album left off, but quickly veers into psych-leaning exploration, teasing out the ’70s singer-songwriter vibes that were present but much more subtle on the album. As for the Olivier Groulx-directed black-and-white clip, it features a couple performing a beautifully choreographed dance routine that mixes contemporary and ballroom styles mirroring the genre-melding of song. It’s a video that as simple as it is pretty. Check it out below.
Both Oh Inhuman Spectacle and “No. 28″ are out now on 4AD.
