The Cheatahs are a shoegaze band who found each other in London. One hails from England, one from Canada, one from California and one from good ole Germany. They’ve been pretty busy, apart from recording their debut album which is out on Wichita Recordings, they’ve also performed at SXSW as well as having toured with Dinosaur Jr. as well as a heap of others. The Cheatahs describe their music first and foremost as an exploration of the possibilities of modern guitar music. A blend of ecstatic noise, ambient drone and visceral, ear-splitting alt-rock, combined with lyrics that touch on the complexities of relationships, nature, the city, memory, dislocation and self-identity. The self-titled record displays a giant creative leap from the lo-fi fuzz of the band’s first two EPs.
The Cheatahs are live in Urban Spree on the 10th April. Want to win the tickets we got? Write to firstname.lastname@example.org and you could be in luck.
