‘Cherokee‘ is the latest fuzz-drenched offering from Magick Mountain, a Leeds based super-group featuring members/past-members of Menace Beach, Sky Larkin, Pulled Apart By Horses, Grammatics and more! It’s an intense headbanger of a track that gets better and better with each listen. ‘Cherokee’ is taken from Magick Mountain’s forthcoming, debut album ‘Weird Feelings‘ which is set for release on 23rd October 2020.
Speaking of the track, the band have said: “We wrote ‘Cherokee’ when there was a Strawberry Moon high in the sky, and continuing with the theme of being inspired by ancient rituals, we read into the Native American Cherokee tribe and their deep connection to nature, lunar cycles and crop growing.”
“In the West there is a tendency to believe that ‘we know best’, colonising and destroying people and their traditions in awful ways. We desperately need to respect native traditions and beliefs, so with this song we hint at learning and letting go. The Strawberry Moon signifies cycles starting over, which is also a metaphor for our own learnings as human beings.”
