Christian Datsun can't get used to being a poster boy...

The Datsuns have spoken about their rapid rise to fame in the UK.

The New Zealand group recently graced the cover of NME, and their self-titled debut album has led to praise across the word.

Christian Datsun told Undercover News in Australia that he’s taking the band’s overnight success in his stride.

“I thought it was funny,” he said. “It was funny – ‘There’s my face’. It’s not a bad photo (on the cover of NME) but it’s not a big deal. We aren’t wrapped up about being on the cover. As I said, we all find it more amusing more than anything else.

“I was walking down the street and saw my face on a poster. I had a chuckle. It seems wherever I go these days there is my face on a poster. It’s not everywhere in the world. It is just everywhere I walk. The album is being promoted and my ego is out of control. There is just posters of me all over the world.”

The Datsuns return to the UK at the end of the year, at: London Astoria (December 10)

Manchester MDH (11)

Glasgow QMU (12)

Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall (13)
