Listen to ‘The Swan’, a new track Nathan Hewitt’s one-time solo project Cheatahs, who’ve just signed with Wichita.


We first met Cheatahs in 2009, when Nathan Hewitt – formerly of London band Little Death, along with KC Underwood who went on to form Big Deal – was making purely acoustic music by himself. In the past 3 years Hewitt has joined Male Bonding as their second guitarist, but he’s also formed a full band under his Cheatahs monkier.

Following an EP released on DIY label Marshall Teller, Cheatahs have now signed a worldwide deal with another London indie, Wichita.

The first release to come from the new partnership is an EP called ‘Sans’, coming November 26th. You can sample and download the record’s title track below and catch the band on tour with The Cribs later this month.
