We are very sorry, but DIIV’s performance at the Motel Mozaique Festival has been cancelled. “Due to an urgent health issue, we regret that DIIV will be cancelling the remaining shows of their European tour. The band express their sincerest apologies to the fans, and will be working to get the shows rescheduled for a later date.”
DIIV from Brooklyn is among experts already popular for its refined noise of debut album Oshin (2012). The critically acclaimed sequel Is The Is Are (2016) DIIV comes to full fruition: the layered textures and languid melodies are back, but this time wrapped in plainly heartfelt songs. Sung harmonies intertwine with gentle guitar melodies or piercing shards of noise, sometimes listless or sultry, sometimes pissed. Frontman Zachary Cole Smith was influenced during the writing process by greats like Elliott Smith and Sonic Youth, legacy is heard in Is The Is Are.
