DIIV – ‘Sometime’
Terrible lyrics. Cracking tune.
It’s pronounced ‘Dive’, OK? Not ‘div’ or ‘D2V’. You only need look at their bandname to realise that DIIV don’t really have a way with words. “Your brain is just a part of your head” they ‘sing’ over shoegaze jangles and basslines imported from The Cure’s best of straight onto GuitarBand. “Your birth is just a part of your death”. Well, thank Christ.
