The critically-acclaimed debut album now back in print, with new artwork by painter Chris Lux.

DIIV is the nom-de-plume of Z. Cole Smith, musical provocateur and frontman of an atmospheric and autumnally charged new Brooklyn four-piece. Recently inked to the uber-reliable Captured Tracks imprint, DIIV created instant vibrations in the blog-world with their impressionistic debut “Sometime”; finding it’s way onto the esteemed pages of Pitchfork and Altered Zones a mere matter of weeks after the group’s formation. 

Enlisting the aid of NYC indie-scene luminary, Devin Ruben Perez, former Smith Westerns drummer Colby Hewitt, and Mr. Smith’s childhood friend Andrew Bailey, DIIV craft a sound that is at once familial and frost-bitten. Indebted to classic kraut, dreamy Creation-records psychedelia, and the primitive-crunch of late-80s Seattle, the band walk a divisive yet perfectly fused patch of classic-underground influence.

Splashes of classic kraut-rock, dreamy Creation-records psychedelia, & the primitive-crunch of late-80s Seattle, the band walk a divisive yet perfectly fused patch of classic-underground influence.

Mostly instrumental, DIIV is in many ways reminiscent of The War on Drugs, with swirling sonics amassing behind buoyant melodies. released on the ever-reliable captured tracks their second album is autumnally charged, feeling at once familial & frost-bitten.
