Cheatahs, shoegaze band

If, like me, you hate it when instruments sound all natural and clean, then you’ll love Cheatahs.

The London shoegaze quartet are back with more new music, having only recently released the Sunne EP in February. Murasaki – a conceptual EP – is inspired by Japanese poet and novelist Murasaki Shikibu and is available digitally from 4 May and on vinyl from 15 June, on Wichita. The title track, shown below, is all tight drum patterns, muddy guitars and delightfully casual vocals. Guitarist James Wignall creates a ghoulish squealing, which is eerie as.

The band are touring with No Joy in May.
