☠ MASS DATURA

In October 2018, London band Mass Datura were deep in the French countryside, holed up at Capitola Analogue, studio of French producer and drummer Nico Brusq. There they recorded 11 tracks straight to tape, capturing band leader Thomas’ Rowe’s songs with an immediate energy and analogue warmth. The resulting album, Wish Untitled, is a personal, but willingly shared, journey through the emotional upheavals we’re all familiar with; fractured companionships, the perils of damaging dependency and crumbling under the weight of a world that doesn’t care. In Mass Datura, named for the poisonous vespertine plants said to help witches levitate, Rowe is joined by Patrick Bartleet on drums, Joseph Colkett on bass, Alice Hubley on synths and mellotron, Leanne Roberts on violin and vocals, and Joshua Hayward (The Horrors) on pedal steel. Wish Untitled is a follow up to 2017’s Sentimental Meltdown, an album that was critically well received (God Is in the TV zine review) and saw the band playing at Liverpool Psych Fest, as well as touring with the likes of Black Angels, A Place to Bury Strangers, Black Mountain and Greg Ashley. This Autumn the band are back on the road with Black Mountain and stopping off at Nottingham for a one-off headline special which is not to be missed.

Years of the graft have put Psyence in the position where they are now having released their self-titled debut album. Psyence is a ten track romp through thundering psychedelic alt rock. It is a sonic feast for old fans, and a crystallisation of everything that makes them the banner bearers of their hometown for new ones.
Their debut album is an intense chemical reaction of face melting riffs and groove laden tunes. It’s a product of many years toiling away in back room venues and countless hours in vans. It’s a working man’s release. Tune in. Drop out.
“The drums sound like Can’s ‘Vitamin C’ as the guitars play a frantic game of snakes and ladders through the kaleidoscopic soundscapes.” The NME
“Psyence are now ready to show the world what they’ve got, in their case face melting 60s rock that sounds like Wooden Shjips drowning in a thick, molten vat of acidic organs and churning riffs.” Q
“This isn’t some flower power ideology: rather, this is cheap drugs in a run down bedsit, furious escapism from concrete surroundings.” CLASH
“Stoke quintet Psyence combine the melodic sensibilities of Tame Impala with the rhythmic thud of ‘Exterminator’-era Primal Scream” The Quietus
