Single Review – DIIV – Bent (Roi’s Song)


Brooklyn Indie Rockers DIIV o return with a follow up on their 2012 album Oshin with a February 5th release of their second album Is the Is Are. the second track to come from the album is ‘Bent (Roi’s Song)’ and it very much follows the path of many Indie groups who dip their toe into Psychedelica. The loose riffs echoed modestly across the track and is underpinned as always be a steady and lightly rumbling bass line. The nonchalant and dazed vocals ink into the instrumentation and is perhaps because of this, the song progresses uncomfortably and indefinitely until you get the guitars hook in the chorus. Musically, it has a little more mystery to it then most of their Indie counterparts produce and hopefully this will be replicated in the rest of their upcoming effort.
