RRP RecommendsCheatahs – Signs to Lorelei

By | posted on 25th September 2015

Cheatahs have shared another track from their forthcoming second album Mythologies, due out at the end of next month.

"Signs to Lorelei" follows and matches "Seven Sisters" in setting anticipation pretty high for the full-length release. A rough diamond in contrast to "Seven Sisters", and if everyone will excuse the dated musical references for a moment, where that track had tones of early Catherine Wheel in some of the guitar work, "Signs to Lorelei" offers up Ride-like vocals alongside its wavering instruments, themselves sounding like loose experiments in recording to tape.

The band says of the song:

"Signs to Lorelei" began with a synth melody that Marc created, around which the rest of us composed our parts. It came together remarkably quickly. Essentially a bedroom recording, it has a hopeful quality to it which I really like, and is one of a couple of gentle moments on the album. It's one of my favorites. The Lorelei is a rock on the eastern bank of the Rhine near St. Goarshausen, Germany. In German folkore, Lorelei is a mermaid (or Rhinemaiden), who is referred to in Germanic art and literature.
