After a little bit of detective work, it emerges that CHEATAHS are a four-piece rock band from London, and signed to the iconic Witchita Recordings label. I’m probably the last person in the world to know this, but the lack of information on the band’s Facebook page doesn’t help!
However, with the sound of jangly, fuzzy and psychedelic guitars, tinged with a slight grunge influence that harks back to some of the best bands from the late Eighties /early Nineties (say, Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr., and the like) I’m glad I made an effort to check ‘em out (he says, not meaning to sound at all patronising!)
The band will be releasing a mini-album (‘Extended Plays’) on February 5th 2013 which will include 8 tracks compiled from the band’s two EPs released in the UK earlier this year, ‘Coared’ and ‘SANS.’ They will also be supporting Veronica Falls and Cold Showers on a short U.S. and Canadian tour the following month.
The video for ‘The Swan’ which opens the album is posted below.
