In 2009, a combo of highly respected Western Australian musicians came together to have some fun playing no-frills boogie rock n' roll in pubs around Perth and Fremantle.
Datura4 combine full-tilt boogie, heavy psychedelia, blues and classic rock’n’roll for a sound heavy on riffage and mind-bending wig-outs. Mariani continues his successful collaboration with bass player Stu Loasby (The Majestic Kelp) and drummer Warren “Wazza” Hall, the original drummer for The Drones , and ups the blues-boogie-legend quotient with the addition of long-time friend and Australian music stalwart Bob Patient (Fatty Lumpkin/ Dave Hole).
Datura4's debut album 'Demon Blues' was released worldwide through Alive NaturalSound Records in 2015 and received international critical acclaim for its hard-rocking, progressive psych-blues. The follow-up 'Hairy Mountain' in 2016 trademarked the band's 'guitars to infinity approach and brought new fans.
Datura4 continues to refine and reinvent. The whispers around album number three are unmistakeable; Australian psych-blues rock at its swaggering, brilliant best. 'Blessed is the Boogie' is set for worldwide release in April 2019 through Alive NaturalSound Records.
