Wolfmother and Jet team up for new track

‘Chase The Feeling’, which you can listen to below, is basically exactly what you’d expect it to sound like: a Led Zeppelin B-Side. It features a lot of guitars, some very Robert Plant-esque vocals from Stockdale, an unnessecary acoustic breakdown, a guitar solo and then another guitar solo. Cester contributes drums and backing vocals, and while his performance is actually pretty impressive, there’s nothing here that hasn’t been done before. 



In a statement accompanying the release of the track, Stockdale explained that most good songs, this one came about over a few snags on the barbie – “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.”


Cester added his own two cents to the statement, saying that “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”.


Wolfmother are performing at Scene and Heard festival in Carins this Sunday.
