DIIV’s songs follow a formula of sorts: a shimmery guitar comes in for a few bars, then another even shimmerier guitar comes in, then some reverby vocals, then a variation on the second shimmery guitar, and so on. They’re the Ink Spots of modern grunge-infused-shoegaze. Sky Ferreira even does a sort of spoken word verse on Blue Boredom.
Bent (Roi’s Song) is real nice. The formula works. Keep at it DIIV.
