Cheatahs return with Sunne EP, the first release since their self-titled debut album in early 2014. The word sunne (an old English spelling) is perhaps apt for describing the four new songs, at turns scorching ambient punk and blissed-out anti-rock.
As with all their previous material, the London based four-piece recorded the EP themselves, doing so mostly in their houses, and their friends Part Chimp’s Camberwell studio when their flatmates/neighbours got annoyed. Ever since their early releases, Cheatahs have been evolving and developing their craft, and ‘Sunne’ is the most clearly defined and ambitious set to date, exploring new territory via sketchy back alleys and sunlit, swampy meadows.
‘Controller’ opens then drifts along in bliss, with chiming guitars picking up and lifting you with them. An acidy bass synth sits underfoot, stitching together a world of sound you’ll want to keep returning to. Title track ‘Sunne’ drives forward, littered with whirring tones and tape-worn melodies while popping in all the right places. The new EP takes a giant step once again, pushing things further along. Cheatahs are burning bright and it’s time you stepped into the light and joined them.
