The Dead Weather – “Gasoline” (Stereogum Premiere)

Amrit Singh | April 23, 2010 - 2:16 pm

With “Die By The Drop“‘s Floria Sigismondi-directed video in the can, Nashville four-piece superchums the Dead Weather — aka Jack White’s pastime du jour —  are shifting focus to the next single from their forthcoming second-effort, Sea Of Cowards. It’s called “Gasoline,” an organ-laced cut-up fueled by White’s Stripes-y rubbed-raw howls and screeching fretwork. Alison’s given berth to cut Jack’s fire and ire for a moment, but for all its flammable metaphors, Jack makes sense in the driver’s (and drummer’s) seat.
