We absolutely loved the first two albums from shoegaze/dream pop outfit DIIV. And so we are truly excited to hear their new album Deceiver. The latest track they’ve dropped from it is called ‘Blankenship’. Hot on the heels of previous singles ‘Skin Game’ and ‘Taker’, ‘Blackenship’ sees the outfit explore a taut post-punk influenced sound that touches on elements of swirling psychedelia as well as their trademark dream pop. Check out the video for ‘Blackenship’ below.
