As a Freo-based outfit is there a special significance playing the Fremantle Winter Music Festival for you?

Being in Fremantle means that Greg, Stu and I don’t have far to drive. It’s great to be part of a cool musical event like this. We’ll see lots of our Freo mates, no doubt. 

Who on the bill are you keen to check out or catch up with?

The Floors are always good. Flooded Palace. Mt Mountain could be interesting.

You recently released advance copies, Demon Blues, of the Daytura4 album, what’s the reception been like so far?

The new Datura4 album is not out just yet. July 10 is the proper release date. There have been some very positive reviews for it so far. Who knows, we could be on a winner here, but we’re not getting too carried away with things just yet.

What are your plans for the rest of the year?

It’s pretty much Datura4 all the way. We’ll see what happens with Demon Blues. Some touring would be nice.

Our buddies in Edie Green and Old Blood, Dream Rimmy, Mudlark, Leon Osborn and many more!

You recently released Black Panda, what’s the reception been like to it?

Black Panda’s been out for two months now, in that time we have received massive support from friends and fans alike, It was played on BBC Radio 6 and we’ve since signed to Pilerats Records. I would say it’s fared better than most of us anticipated, now triple j’s onto it and playing it on the reg and that’s all the better.

What are your plans for the rest of the year?

We’re working hard on our debut album! We have the privilege of working with Kevin Parker and can’t wait to hear the finished product. It ought to be out by the end of this year. We’ll be heading to the Eastern States in September as well. Exciting stuff!
