Cherubs - Uncovered by Heartbeat Review

by Zane Ewton

.
Cherubs formed in 1992 in Austin, Texas and developed a kinship with the Butthole Surfers. The band relied on hypnotic beats with a blend of magic and horror that led them to the acclaimed Heroin Man, issued right after the band dissolved in 1994.

Wait! That's not right. These Cherubs formed in 2003 and Uncovered by Heartbeat is the debut record of the band that has toured with the likes of Bloc Party, The Libertines and other UK-bred bands.

No two bands with the same name could have so little in common. The current Cherubs built a record of sturdy rock songs, new wave without the keyboards. Not to mention as small debt to The Strokes and Interpol. Those two bands owe big debts to legends of the past as well, though.

Despite the influences, Cherubs stand on their own quite well and have created an exciting record of tunes. Highlights include "This Awful Morning" and "Adult Video/Chinese Food". Keep an eye on this band; you will likely hear the same hype that has surrounded their touring mates. Some of that hype could be deserved, most of the time it isn't.
