French bold three-piece DÄTCHA MANDALA blend blues rock, heavy rock and psychedelic rock. Highlighted by front man Nicolas Sauvey’s stunning Robert Plant-esque vocals, their riffs draw inspiration from the musical effervescence of the seventies as much as from the dynamism of the current heavy rock scene.
In 2016, Dätcha Mandala ink a deal with Mrs Red Sound – the record label created by stoner rock band Mars Red Sky – to release their EP ‘Anâhata’: a pure blues rock collection peppered with delighting psychedelia. They return to the studio the following year to record their debut album ‘Rokh’ with English producer Clive Martin (Queen, Tom Yorke, The Cure) using a full analog process. The release of their sophomore album ‘Hara’ in June 2021 marks the trio’s willingness to express concerns about politics and ecology. This album particularly showcases the richness of their musical influences.
Dätcha Mandala’s live shows are nothing but overflowing and communicative energy. They already performed more than 600 shows over Europe and North America, including a memorable gig as opening act of Les Insus (ex-Telephone) in 2017 at the Stade de France arena in front of several thousands of people. Their strong presence on stage echoes an intense creative bubbling.
Their new EP ‘The Last Drop’ pays tribute to the 70s rock frenzy. It was released with behind-the-scenes video documentary ‘In Studio With Dätcha Mandala’ – directed by Roger Merpillat – on May 20th 2022 via Mrs Red Sound.
