After earning a reputation for their mesmerising live performances supporting The Black Angels and A Place To Bury Strangers, London-based Mass Datura have returned with a new single titled Sutra Swoon Sutra.
Following on from their 2017 debut album, Sentimental Meltdown, Mass Datura have taken a much more organic approach to their songwriting, with the band using an old school method by recording straight to tape, perfectly capturing the dynamic energy and magnetic sound of the act. That analogue quality creates a warmth and rawness to Sutra Swoon Sutra, giving it a tinge of edginess to it.
With a punchy vocal line supported by haunting backing harmonies, Mass Datura have coupled layers of violin and lo-fi synth to take the edge off the sharpness of the dirty guitar sound. The dynamics of Sutra Swoon Sutra change slightly with a piano, adding a more melancholic tone that breaks up the melodic flow and structure of the track while still managing to maintain a raw quality.
A grand opening to their upcoming album, Wish Untitled, due to be released on July 10th via All Types Of Slime Records, Mass Datura’s Sutra Swoon Sutra will hook you in with its sonic textures, catchy melody and authentic sound.
