Daturah was formed in December 2003 in the city of Frankfurt, Germany. This quintet plays lengthy mostly instrumental post-rock songs with psychedelic influences. The name references the plant datura, a potent entheogen capable of putting a person in a hallucinogenic trance indistinguishable from reality. The band released their self-financed debut album in May 2005. This demo, Daturah, was released half a year later on the American Indie-label Graveface Records. Their second album, reverie, was released in 2008 on Graveface Records and Golden Antenna Records.
In June 2011, the group announced an indefinite hiatus on their facebook page.
