THE DATSUNS revel in 1970s cult film super-villains for new album, DEEP SLEEP released OCTOBER 3rd 2014 via Hellsquad/Valve records through MGM.
Seizing the opportunity of being in the same city, Deep Sleep was written and recorded in a blistering fast ten days at Roundhead Studios in Auckland last summer. The result is a sonic explosion that arrives, lights the place on fire, then leaves, all within the space of 34 minutes.
Singer/bassist Dolf de Borst explains, â€œWeâ€™re not fucking around. Weâ€™re all conscious of the fact that we donâ€™t live close to each other and weâ€™re getting older and people have families, so if weâ€™re together, weâ€™re going to make records.â€
Deep Sleep elaborates on their signature breakneck-paced rockâ€™nâ€™roll delving into more menacing terrain summoned from the bands collective proto-metal 70s influences; Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult and Bloodrock, to name a few. Semi-tones are thrown in amongst blues scale riffs creating a darker, more evil sound that summons images of 1970s cult film super-villains.
