About The Datsuns
New Zealand hard rock outfit the Datsuns blazed onto the scene in the early 2000s with their no-frills take on sleazy garage rock, echoing a sound similar to contemporaries like the White Stripes, Jet, and Wolfmother. Their 2002 debut, The Datsuns, would prove to be their big breakthrough and peak in popularity in the mainstream, riding high on singles "MF from Hell" and "Lady." Although subsequent efforts made less of a splash overseas, they remained a Top 20 presence at home for 2004's Outta Sight/Outta Mind and 2006's Smoke & Mirrors. They returned to the charts in 2014 with their sixth LP, Deep Sleep. In 2021, they released their seventh set, Eye to Eye.
