Ethanol Blend started off as the solo project of South Australian local Jack Stokes aka Slippery Sloth. The project has now ripened into a band dynamic with good friends Dale, Zack and Alex. The band takes influence from range of different genres and bands such as The Smiths, DIIV, Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever and Beach Fossils.
'The Blend Part 1.' is the first selection of songs from their debut LP. The album consists of nine tracks all written, recorded and produced in Jack's home studio in Port Noarlunga, South Australia.
The band have supported the likes of Skegss, Pist Idiots and Ruby Fields in the last six months and have just finished their first run of shows up the east coast of Australia.
'Tongue & Cheek' is the first single off their upcoming second album. The song see's a slight change in sound and tempo, whilst maintaining the essence of DYI recording. 'The Blend Part 2.' will be out later this year.
