Some may argue tha

t punk is dead, but one thing is for sure, its spirit certainly isn’t, and it’s clearly visible in the powerful sounds of London’s Cheatahs. Cheatahs comes at their listeners in full force, yet they remain to be precise and thoroughly composed while doing so. Their sound is surrounded by layers of shoegaze atmosphere and driven by grunge-influenced rhythms and a headstrong punk nature to top it all off and on their debut single, “The Swan.” They make a strong, unforgettable impression that’s incredibly hard to shake. Take our advice and look out for these guys, and when you listen to their music, don’t forget to play it loud.
