Wolfmother & Jet’s Chris Cester Collab On New Song ‘Chase The Feeling’

Aussie icons, Wolfmother and Jet have teamed up to give us new track, ‘Chase The Feeling’. It’s a rock anthem that comprises their signature, musical specialties.

With Cester’s fun rhythms, Wolfmother’s classic riffs, and Andrew Stockman’s whirring vocals. Jet’s Chris Cester also lends his vocals to the track, contrasting nicely with Stockman’s.

They’ve dropped a video too. It sees the guys play in what looks like a construction site and has a real 80s rock film clip vibe.

The tale of this collab apparently starts way back when Wolfmother were recording their first record. Stockdale says, “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.”

Crediting Jason Hills’ production work, Stockdale reckons they gave one of his riffs “a bit of a Hollywood nip and tuck”.

“Now it’s morphed into it’s own hybrid anthem for many future backyard cook ups and late night dive bar meanderings,” he said.

Jet’s Chris Cester says him and Andrew have known each other for years.

“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.”

Have a listen to ‘Chase The Feeling’ below.

Wolfmother are headlining this year’s Scene & Heard Festival in Cairns, Brisbane, and Newcastle. Plus, they’ll be playing a special set at Marion Bay’s Fall Festival.
