DIIV

Dive is one of two spin-offs from Beach Fossils, one of Brooklyn's preeminent lazy-Sunday guitar bands. While Fossils bassist JohnPena's Heavenly Beat sounds low-key and tailor-made for cocktail hour, Dive, led by guitarist Zachary Cole Smith, is decidedly more guitar-driven.

We've not been contacted by Dirk Ivins or his lawyers, but the short of it is that I don't really give a fuck what the band is called. Ioriginated this project in a bedroom with no internet and didn't know if it would ever leave the bedroom.

The band is the same, the music is the same, thefuture will always be the same. A name is nothing." « hide
