CMJ 2012 was such a great experience for me. I was fortunate enough to host a CMJ-themed episode for MTV’s Weird Vibes. This meant that I got to skip lines, check out a ton of live music, hang out with the rich and fabulous and interview bands. If there was ever a gig I was born to do, this is it! You’ll be hearing more and seeing the episode very soon and of course, I will let you know all the details. But for now, I want to hip you to some singers and bands you might not be familiar with.
This post is about DIIV. Formerly known as “Dive,” the quartet from Brooklyn is an indie rock/dream pop/shoe gaze band. If none of that makes sense to you, think of a smooth, psychedelic rock sound with trippy and mellow vocals. DIIV has a hug e buzz around them and they were one of the most talked about bands at CMJ. I caught the tail end of their set – like literally the last note, so I had to discover their music on my own. I am really liking their album “Oshin” and I recommend it to you!
DIIV was super cool to chat with as I quizzed them about some of the various rockstars they’ve hung out with. This experience made me realize – HOLY SHIT! I’ve met a lot of people! (And Universe, I am deeply grateful so please bring me more great experiences!)
Thanks again DIIV for a great interview and for the great music! I know you’re going to be HUGE!
