Profile
Hailing from Fremantle in Western Australia, Datura 4 is the brainchild of Dom Mariani (frontman of legendary Australian garage rockers The Stems and power pop favorites DM3) and Greg Hitchcock (former You Am I and one-time New Christs’ guitarist). In 2011 they joined forces combining a shared passion for full-tilt boogie, psychedelic rock, and progressive blues.
