Summerset Concert: Methyl Ethel, Cub Sport & Guests

04/02/2017 - 04/02/2017 Summerset Concert: Methyl Ethel, Cub Sport & Guests

The Summerset Concert will be the juicy cherry on top of the City of Stirling’s Summerset Arts Festival, celebrating the final weekend with a musical treat and delicious eats! Australian dates for their upcoming World Tour have already sold out, but fear not, because local alt-pop project Methyl Ethel will headline this epic free live music event, bringing their intricate tapestry of melodies to the lush surrounds of the Stirling Civic Gardens. Named WA Live Act of the Year at the 2016 National Live Music Awards, and off the back of their critically revered first LP Oh Inhuman Spectacle, this is a band well on its way to becoming the next great Western Australian musical export – don’t miss your chance to catch them on the ascent. Supporting Methyl Ethel will be Brisbane indie poppers Cub Sport, whose shimmering harmonies are garnering attention around the world. Their ‘glistening’ debut album This Is Our Vice, featuring the distinctive and beautiful falsetto of principal songwriter, Tim Nelson, has followed hot on the heels of their break out hit, Told You So, and cemented their reputation as producers of warm, melodic indie pop gems. Joining them will be two emerging West Australian artists Lucy Peach and Jack Davies. Lucy Peach brings her pitch-perfect voice to Summerset after winning Best Folk Act 2016, touring internationally and releasing her second EP, Silver Tongue. “I hang off every word of unwavering devotion Peach delivers. From the opening offering of this melodious gift, through to it’s final strum – the song rings joyous, enchanting, and real.” – Gemma Pike, Triple J. Jack Davies is a young singer/songwriter from Perth who delivers a laid back blend of guitar, harmonica and the poetry of broken hearts and politics. His songs recently won the 2016 Fairbridge Quest, as well as the ACMF National Songwriting Competition.
