DIIV – Is The Is Are


DIIV - Is The Is Are (Captured Tracks) 2016


Imagine if Robert Smith of The Cure and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth dated, and their romantic entanglement was to spawn a baby of music and noise – DIIV are that bastard sound baby. A throwback to the age when pop-rock meant haunting melodies with hooks that floated subconsciously from shoegaze guitars; where vocals were muttered asides to no one in particular and a single spine would repeat throughout the whole song for the rest of the verses and choruses to shimmy idly in tantric, half-baked malaise. DIIV succeed in creating dreamscape pop and shimmery, ethereal rock – a top notch collection of shoegazey, contemplative songs that make you tap your feet and bop your head along as if the eighties never ended.
