Cut The Grass b/w Kenworth - 7 Inch: Taken from the forthcoming LP, Cut the Grass/Kenworth sees the band harness their powerful live shows and transcend their first few underground releases with a matured ease.

Extended Plays: With songs written by Nathan and James beginning to pile up, the band decided to make a follow up EP immediately. Again produced by Dean, the quartet recorded the bulk of the music in their Hackney studio over a weekend in June. Shortly after, the band supported Milk Music in east London, a gig at which, as luck would have it, Mark and Ben from Wichita were in attendance. The duo were impressed by the set and asked the band if they had any recorded music they could listen to. After hearing Coaredand the unreleased songs, Wichita offered to sign Cheatahs and put out the newly recorded EP -- SANS -- as their first release on the label. In February 5 the Extended Plays will be released in the US. The album combines the two UK releases of Coared and SANS.

Cheatahs: A roaring mix of ecstatic noise, ambient drone, and resounding alt-rock, Cheatahs expands the sound found on the band’s Extended Plays (a compilation of their two UK-exclusive 2012 EPs Coared and SANS) released in the US last February. Throughout the album, Cheatahs maintain a pitch-perfect balance of melody, noise, and texture, from the barreling guitar wall of “Geographic” to the gentler, sinuous “Mission Creep;” from the anthemic “The Swan” (an altered take from the Extended Plays version) to the charging, multi-parted atmospherics of “Kenworth;” and from the evocative, swooning “IV” to the booming “Get Tight.” In addition to “Cut The Grass,” which premiered on The AV Club in August (“…crunchy textures with dreamy melodies and wispy vocal harmonies”), track “Fall” premiered on Pitchfork in March as an early taste of the album and was quickly declared a “…catchy-as-f*ck soaring-guitar anthem” by Stereogum. Loose themes of nature, the city, memory, dislocation, self-identity and the complexities of relationships run through all the songs, which were recorded and mixed by bassist Dean Reid and produced by the band, in keeping with their previous releases.
