Cheatahs Download (MP3)
Cheatahs’ long-awaited debut album is first and foremost 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.

"Cheatahs revere FX-pedal-bashing titans, but an uber melodious debut validates the London quartet's kinship." Mojo ****
