Titled Triage, it’s the proper follow-up to 2017’s Everything Is Forgotten and Webb’s fourth LP overall under the CoSigned Methyl Ethel moniker. The 4AD debut was written, produced, and performed in its entirety by Webb, with recording taking place in his West Perth home studio.
According to a press statement, the album came together as Webb settled back into a routine in his hometown — the same process that helped birth his earlier records. “I got obsessed with a lot of theory, essentially trying to discover how songs work,” he noted.
Triage was a result of these introspective thinking sessions and song dissections. It’s said to be “more reflective” than its predecessors, one that “explores the notion of coming of age, only to reference it for the snapshots and passing memories that it has become.” In Webb’s own words, it’s “cold logic for warm bodies.”
The forthcoming LP is slated for release on February 15th, 2019, and is being teased with “Real Tight”, a self-described “surrealist love song.” Take a listen below via its Matt Sav-directed music video.
