The multinational quartet have been busy since 2014’s self-titled debut, with a seemingly never ending live itinerary coupled with various studio sessions in Glasgow, London and Ramsgate that culminated in the ambitious sonic environs of Mythologies. The album, which takes its name from the title of Roland Barthes’ collection of essays on semiotics and myth, was inspired in part by the Cheatahs’ gallery-based improvisational noise shows and marks a new and ambitious chapter for the band.

Having released two EPs earlier this year teasing of their return, “Signs To Lorelei” – which follows debut album single “Seven Sisters” (official video: – is a welcome introduction to the next chapter. Reminiscent of a ‘70s Sci-Fi soundtrack, the track eases into view before evolving into a glorious, cascading swathe of sonic beauty – remolding its influences, while emerging as an early highlight of the album.

Cheatahs are: Nathan Hewitt (vocals, guitar), Marc Raue (drums), Dean Reid (bass/vocals), and James Wignall (guitar).
