“DIIV into passion”
DIIV, band from Brooklyn formed in 2011 it’s the perfect example of a delicious slowly cooked stew of several influences.
When I first heard DIIV, Dirk Ivens and Absolutely Body Control, The Klinik and of course Dive, popped into my mind and I was expecting to find another band born from the tremendous legacy of one of the Sonar founders.
Surprise! Here’s an album packed with guitars, slick melodies and a heart paced drum. Let’s start for not labelling it and I’m sure this album will give you constantly new experiences. Listening it under the influence of Tangerine Dream, The Cure or Nirvana and there will be always something new to find among these 13 tracks.
Oshin is powerful and it might sound like a one track album. Just like a soundtrack, a frozen moment in time unleashing an euphoria of feelings while you’re waiting for the sunrise.
This is a highly recommended album for all of you who lost faith in passion. Go for a walk or for a ride and smile and fly. The good thing of this is that you don’t even need to leave your couch. DIIV will do it all for you and Oshin will take you there.
