We can remember Diiv
back when they were performing under the original spelling of their name (aka the way most folks spell the word "dive"). We caught Zachary Cole Smith and his band opening for Frankie Rose at the Knitting Factory, and, let's be honest, they put on a better show than the headliners. Well, Diiv is finally returning with their long-awaited sophomore album, Is The Is Are
, and the track, aptly titled "Dopamine," is a slick pop rush of guitar reverb pleasure right to the brain. If this record is half as good as Oshiin
, we'll probably be including Diiv in a bunch of year end lists all over again.
