Wolfmother‘s new single Chase the Feeling features Chris Cester from Jet.
Andrew Stockdale said: “Way back in the day when we were recording the first Wolfmother record, Chris invited us all over for a barbecue at his house in LA. I think we all appreciated the sense of camaraderie he and the band had shown us in the early days. So it’s kind of cool to acknowledge these times by combining forces with a collaboration. With Chris’s signature style drumming, rock speak and his old mate Jason Hills production wizardry, we managed to give one of my riffs a bit of a Hollywood nip and tuck, without over polishing the wild beast. Now it’s morphed into it’s own hybrid anthem for many future backyard cook ups and late night dive bar meanderings.”
Chris Cester adds: “Andrew and I have known each other for years and when he’d come to LA we’d always say “let’s do something let’s jam or whatever” so one day he comes over with this riff, we finished writing it in an hour or two, recorded it all in a couple more. No computers, no BPM’s making it all robotic – all live. I think we did six takes!? It felt good to roll the tape and just deal with the consequences…next to a digital record, it sounds like an animal to me”.
