CHEATAHS record out now!

10/02/2014

Cheatahs' long-awaited debut album is out now on Wichita Recordings!

Here's our Sönke with his copy - look how happy he is..

 

Here's a selection of some of the finest press quotes about the record:

"'Kenworth' blusters tempestuously, pauses for breath, blusters again, shifts to a more discursive mood, shifts again to a hazy shimmer; ''The Swan' switches from bubblegum buzz and a cheerfully downbeat chorus to a sound more bold and resolute." The Guardian

"A fuzzadelic miasma that effortlessly merges shoegaze with grunge...'Cheatahs' is a triumph of content over style, a gleaming pop wrecking ball taken to the sonic cathedral." NME

"If you've ever wondered why dogs stick their heads out of the car window then have a listen to 'Geographic' by Cheatahs. Then you'll know. Know the undeniably joyous feeling of dipping your face into a whooshing jet stream of guitars that leaves you lolling your tongue at the world like a sedated Miley Cyrus." Fake DIY

"Their debut album attempts to nestle cosily between Loveless and Bandwagonesque offering dazed, yearning melodies over driving rhythms, all swaddled in comforting layers of fuzz"  Uncut Magazine

"Cheatahs clearly don’t shy away from any of their influences throughout this album, but they also aren’t lazy enough to merely deliver another tired, lifeless rehash of material canonized long ago. They are continually injecting these dynamic songs with a relentlessly modern spirit" The Line Of Best Fit
