Emerging from musically eclectic Lancastrian roots, Slo Cheetah have played renowned venues in Manchester such as Night & Day Café, supported acclaimed Warrington favourites like Crawlers and The K’s, and recently featured on BBC Introducing Merseyside with previous release ‘Roam’. The three northern monkeys return with a sonic gift in the form of their new single ‘White Knights’, scheduled for release August 5th 2022 alongside wrapped in a head-spinning music video.
Having gigged across various club circuits in the northwest and following the success of frontman Jordan Lee’s collaboration on LEKNA’s recent track ‘Wide Awake’, gaining excess of 10,000 plays and a spin on BBC Introducing Sussex & Surrey; the alternative rock three-piece aims to make a statement in 2022. Although the bandmates have been continually writing and recording new material this past year, they are truly in their element when it comes to live performance – previously working with Scruff of the Neck regularly and sharing the stage with other local talent such as The K’s, Crawlers and Stanleys. ‘White Knights’ is the third track of an extensive catalogue mastered by Alex Wharton at Abbey Road Studios.
With the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fanatics taking inspiration from a wide range of sounds such as Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters; as a result, the northern lads have a knack for creating head-bopping grooves, soaring singalong choruses and thought-provoking lyrics, often blurring the lines between multiple genres of music. Built upon a foundation of playing together since they were just eleven years old, their passion for music above all else has seen bandmates Jordan, David and Elliot completely re-engineer themselves despite their own inhibitions, allowing them to step up onto a stage and captivate an audience. With a calm confidence, the three-piece bring a tongue in cheek, high energy, and humorous nature that permeates into their performances, breaking down barriers between class and culture.
