DATURA – ” Sapphire “

Posted: February 20, 2022 in MUSIC

Wenatchee, Washington outfit Datura returned at the end of January with “Arcano Chemical”, a brooding piece of post-punk Goth meets early eighties New Wave that is somewhere between The Cure in their early days and Balthazar with nods to Visage and Viet Cong along the way. Intense barely covers it. And those icy cold Will Sergeant style guitars are utterly compelling. Tremendous stuff, especially the strangely uplifting ‘Sapphire‘.

Datura’s sound recalls goth-rock and post-rock influences like The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus, The Chameleons, Depeche Mode, and early Dead Can Dance.
