Originating in 2009 out of the port city of Fremantle, Western Australia, potentially one of the most isolated cities in the world, the DATURA4 seed was born from the nucleus of two of Perth’s most celebrated and now legendary garage rockers The Stems (Dom Mariani) and The Bamboos (Greg Hitchcock). 

Mariani and Hitchcock have come full circle to form the psychedelic rock’n’roll four-piece DATURA4. It’s a ballsy return to the dirty hard rock and blues, full-tilt boogie and heavy psychedelia they grew up with while adding their own unique and original spin on things.  Together with long-time Mariani collaborator and Rippled Souls bassist Stu Loasby and former drummer for The Drones Warren Hall, they came together to produce an impressive debut album ‘Demon Blues’ and to define the DATURA4 sound. Released in mid-July 2015 it was enthusiastically received by fans and the music press alike.

Just over a year later and DATURA4 are proud to announce the release of album number two Hairy Mountain, their second through the Alive NaturalSound Records label.

Hairy Mountain  builds on DATURA4’s 'guitars to infinity' approach and classic song-writing skills. Ten solid tracks which celebrate an unbridled joy for rock'n'roll with a nod to the spiritual presence of their hairy Oz rock forefathers.

Opening track ‘Fool's Gold Rush' kicks things off on a haze of heavy fuzz and dreamy vocal harmonies leading straight into the menacing 'Trolls' which sets the album on a course of hard rock riffage and psych-boogie blues. Songwriters Mariani and Hitchcock address sobering themes which make comment on the fear of the world turning to shit while taking us through to the utopian optimism of the title track with its monolithic groove and lysergic tale of perfect surf breaks and peace-pipe smoking chiefs.

Recorded during the summer of 2016 at Electric City in North Fremantle and Real2Reel Studios in WA’s south-west, Hairy Mountain is the culmination of a lifetime of musical archaeology and the ongoing search for the never ending riff.

Since their inception DATURA4 have gigged regularly and have also had the honour of opening up for the legendary ZZ Top, New Zealand guitar legend Kevin Borich, Endless Boogie, Tumbleweed and You Am I
