Pacific Northwest post-punk trio DATURA expand on the tense, synth-heavy sound their first two EPs with their new full-length, Arcano Chemical, which sees release on Sell The Heart Records on January 27, 2022.

Recorded in their hometown of Wenatchee, Washington, and mastered by Seattle-based recording engineer and musician TAD Doyle, the album highlights the band’s range of emotion and stylistic variety, which White Light // White Heat calls, “goth-tinged, compelling, energetic, and melodic dark post-punk influenced by ’80s greats like The Cure, The Misfits, Echo, and the Bunnymen, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Chameleons.“

After finding their show calendar eradicated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the band locked down during the winter of 2020 to craft a pensive collection of songs that tells stories of ghosts, nightmares, isolation, love, and death.

Today the band shares their video for “Phantasma,” the first single from the record, which was produced by EMB Flame Productions.

DATURA have teamed up with Andy Pohl, guitarist of Tsunami Bomb and owner of Sell the Heart Records, to share the album in cassette and CD format, and all major streaming platforms.
