Berlin, Germany based garage rock/post-punk/industrial trio The Black Cheetahs premiere a brand new music video for the latest single »Gold Gold Gold« taken from their debut album, »Slow Doomed Fever«, out on July 4th, 2022 via Wave Records.

Singer and guitarist Sofia TK comments: “Sell your soul to the devil, get rich, corrupted, realise it, feel the pain, throw it all away to be changed again: The experience of gold and its alchemical power. »Gold Gold Gold« talks about a murderess who goes all the way in a tempestuous life and ends up killing her mafia lover, sick of seeing her principles compromised. This song came out of a jam singing »I Put A Spell On You« on top of a dubstep beat. It all started with Screaming’ Jay Hawkins’ but cool enough, the song took its own course and ended up rather paying tribute to Nina Simone taking up her guns.”

Writhing in frenzy after a reckless odyssey. »Slow Doomed Fever«, the first full-length album by The Black Cheetahs, explores topics of love and death among outlaws, seekers and free spirits.

Eight incisively slow and heavy songs weaved by thick layers of dirty bass synths and guitar walls complete this cathartic soundtrack, where elements of southern garage rock and doom are merged with dark ambient electronics.

Album producer and driver of the wavefront, Sofia TK’s vocals bring the ammunition of a hardcore punk legacy (FFT Error) with the sentiment of an edgy blues soul.

As a bonus, the guest appearance of Andrew N.U. Unruh from Einstürzende Neubauten adds magic to the gloomy ballad »So Long A Line« with the moans of water percussion, and metal sink crescendos on »Here’s The Light«, the final track and ode to the void.

Close your eyes and enjoy the hypnotic, cinematic experience of doom rock’n’roll.

The Black Cheetahs are Sofia TK (guitars, vocals, drums programming), Jack Wendy (synths, piano, drums programming) and Christian Gjelstrup (bass). Except for the two tribute tracks (the legendary »Funnel Of Love« by Wanda Jackson, and Nirvana’s »School«), the album is co-written by TK & Wendy.
