Yesterday saw Brooklyn indie rockers Dive change their name to Diiv. Frontman Zachary Cole Smith (Of Beach Fossils fame) explained it as an act of respect towards Belgian artist Dirk Ivins aka Dive.
Zachary said “the band is the same, the music is the same, the future will always be the same. A name is nothing.”
To coincide with the name change, Diiv shared a new cut, ‘Doused’, from their upcoming debut album Oshin, out June 26th via Captured Tracks. Listen to it below.
