Slight name confusion, same brilliant sound. Cole Smith's band have announced that they are now calling themselves DIIV - as opposed to DIVE - as well as releasing new single "Doused".
The change comes out of respect to a 90's Belgian band formed by Dirk Ivens (there was no lawsuit though) and takes effect immediately with absolutely no change to the overall structure or style.
All names aside, new single "Doused" - as previously heard on the very, very impressive live performance for Newtown radio - is a another blistering, sonic progression that shows off the bands undeniable talents.
Debut album Oshin (due June 25th in the UK) couldn't be more anticipated. Hear "Doused" below.
