    PREVIOUS BIO FOR DATURA4’S DEMON BLUES ALBUM:

    Hailing from Fremantle in Western Australia, Datura4 is the brainchild of Dom Mariani (frontman of legendary Australian garage rockers The Stems and Power Pop favorites DM3) and Greg Hitchcock (former You Am I and one-time New Christs’ guitarist). In 2011 they joined forces combining a shared passion for full-tilt boogie, psychedelic rock and progressive blues.

    Along with drummer Warren Hall who previously played with The Drones and bass player Stu Loasby Datura4 have been steadily building a reputation in their hometown with their live performances. With a healthy nod to early ’70s Australian Psych/Blues/Boogie from the likes of Buffalo, Coloured Balls, The Aztecs and latter era Masters Apprentices, Demon Blues represents Mariani & Hitchcock’s love of hard hitting bell-bottom blues.

    The psychedelic cover art is by Joshua Marc Levy/Asheville Art Family.

    Datura4’s Demon Blues will be available on limited colored vinyl, CD and digital formats July 10th via Alive Naturalsound Records. The CD will include one bonus track not available on other formats, as well as alternate cover art.

  • PRESS QUOTES

    • Elements of hard-lined blues remain evident, but are primarily smoothed out by a dominant, free-formed ’70s psych sparsity. Those sprawling soundscapes themselves threaten explosive outbreaks yet are reigned in further with a defining boogie, a heavy footstomp of swagger that sets a more contemporary course. – ROLLING STONE
    • If you dig your blues heavy, garage-y and festering with a mind-stewing barrage of psych-fueled overtones, then you’ve just got to pick up this groove-pummeling debut from Aussie four-piece Datura4. – THE BLUES MAGAZINE
    • 9/10! A way smokin’ slab of pysch ‘n’ furious jams, powered by amped to 11 guitars and straight-up boogaloo. Demon Blues is pretty much satisfaction guaranteed. - VIVE LE ROCK
    • 4.5/5! Datura4’s Demon Blues 70s rock will grab you like a Torana driver’s handshake in the days before power steering. There are saturated and overdriven guitars all over these 10 songs like a rash on a Led Zeppelin groupie. - I-94 BAR
    • Groovy, glammy, psychedelic blues. - POPMATTERS
