The Pacific Northwest post-punk trio Datura (which you will know from our free Post-Punk compilation) has teamed up with Andy Pohl, guitarist of Tsunami Bomb and owner of Sell the Heart Records, to release “Arcano Chemical”. The album will be available on January 27th on cassette, CD, and all major streaming platforms and as download via Bandcamp.
Luckily for you we are able to already offer you the full stream of this album on Side-Line. Influenced by 80s acts like The Cure, The Misfits, Echo and the Bunnymen, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Chameleons, the post-punk trio Datura offer a very updated and melodic version of post-punk. “Arcano Chemical” is the follow-up to their first two EPs and was recorded in their hometown of Wenatchee, WA and mastered by Seattle-based recording engineer and musician TAD Doyle.
Enjoy the full album below.
Bat-Cave Productions will release a deluxe CD version of the album for European distribution in March.
Here’s the video “Phantasma”, the first single off “Arcano Chemical” followed by “Bury Me” and “I’ll Wait”.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
