“Signs to Lorelei” by Cheatahs
London, England’s Cheatahs have very recently debuted their video for “Signs To Lorelei,” off their upcoming sophomore album Mythologies. Directed by Cherise Payne (FKA Twigs, Jamie XX, Django Django, Laura Marling), the mysterious, otherworldly clip depicts an underwater world saturated in color. “Signs To Lorelei” is available as a single via iTunes, and comes as an instant grat track with the purchase of Mythologies, which will be released on October 30, 2015 via Wichita Recordings.
Cheatahs will begin their North American headlining tour this Tuesday, October 13th when they start their seven-show run throughout the CMJ Music Marathon in New York, NY. Following an October 19th live in-studio session with KEXP (12pm on-air), the band will then traverse across the US and into Canada before wrapping up on November 9th in Bellingham, WA. A full itinerary is below.
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” – is a welcome introduction to the next chapter. Reminiscent of a ’70s Sci-Fi soundtrack, the track eases into view as an ever evolving sound.
