DIIV w/ The Provincial Archive, Summering, Tropic Harbour
Friday, October 6, 2017
After radio silence for a lengthy gestation period, we’re thrilled to have DIIV at UP+DT 2017! Based out of Brooklyn, NY, DIIV combines shoegaze bliss with grunge catharsis. Consisting of Zachary Cole Smith (guitar, vocals), Andrew Bailey (guitar), Devin Ruben Perez (bass) Colin Caulfield (keyboards, guitar) and Ben Newman (drums), the five-piece garnered a great deal of attention with their 2012 debut album, Oshin. After four years, the group has released a sprawling double album, 2016’s Is the Is Are, reflecting a more polished sound that is fresh but still familiar, replete with glistening guitars, krautrock pulse, and trancelike lyrics.
