“One of the things we wanted to capture on Starcatcher is us creating the music in real time, so a lot of what you hear is take two, take three,” Greta Van Fleet bassist Sam Kiszka tells Apple Music. The Michigan-born band credits superproducer Dave Cobb (Slash, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton) for the more organic feel on their third album. “He knows how to capture us at our most relaxed, almost catching us off guard, kind of tricking us into thinking that we're not recording an album. We'll go out to dinner after working all day and then drink some wine and come back and then we're all really relaxed, and throwing around new ideas, and we just roll with those things.” Greta Van Fleet has been around for more than a decade, and they haven't forgotten their roots—or how to remain humble. “We've been a band for such a long time,” says drummer Danny Wagner. “The first track that was released, the first time we heard it was on radio, because I don't even think streaming was really that prevalent yet. We were all on a landline with each other, talking to each other, and it started playing on the radio and it was just a lot of silence. You're just listening to it and [then you say], 'All right, that's cool. See you tomorrow.’”
