Seven years hath passed since the last release action from New Zealand’s most noted crafters of classic (as in some of sort of ‘70s-inspired grunge-metal meets garage) rock.
And two whole decades are done and dusted since they took the Northern hemisphere by storm, leading the back-to-rock charge at the beginning of the millennium alongside The White Stripes and The Hives.
That was when they scored a Peel Session and an NME cover; when they toured Europe and the States and headed back to hit Aus & NZ for the Big Day Out; when they played the main stage at Ozzfest and toured with Metallica.
And while time has not stood still, it hasn’t slowed them down either – The Datsuns are now making the best music they’ve ever made.
The band have released their new single “Brain to Brain” plus announced a comeback album of sorts, Eye To Eye, for May 28.
