Methyl Ethel has always been an expression of the subconscious. Born in the heat of the Australian summer, the early recordings were built from the ground up in various bedrooms and friends' studios; the same spaces Jake returned to for Triage, the third album in a triptych he started with Oh Inhuman Spectacle (2015) and continued with Everything Is Forgotten (2017), which was named Best Independent Album by AIR, the Australian Independent Record Labels Association.

Triage is like experiencing youth as a fever dream. Drawing from experiences that have been erased with time. As ever, the songs feel like "real life" even if their author has put their authenticity into question in the past. "The first couple of records I wrote from a personal experience, then obscured it; that's how I write songs", he explains, "My go-to thing is really to write about an abstract emotional experience while being ultra-personal." This delicate balance of internal revelations played off against calculated ambiguity, has struck a nerve as Jake's lyrics are sung back at him by audiences around the globe.
