Barely year ago, it was Smith's solo project, a fairly standard dream-pop act. The impact of DIIV's vibrant and muscular rhythm section makes all the difference. They might not rock , but Oshin always offers tactile resistance.
And after the second " Druun ", Oshin starts to coil into a darker pose, emerging from the deep with the tension of early Interpol before turning post- Fugazi emo drunk on reverb. It's a snapshot and a potential pivot; DIIV appear to be at a place where bands like Real Estate and the War On Drugs were after their debut full-lengths; similarly good albums which blurred instrumentals and songcraft, evocation and statement.
Of course, their next ones were great largely because they made you care about the people who created them. DIIV have made a compelling debut where what the band is actually about is fairly unimportant. But since Oshin deftly defines what they do , and what they do now, this mystery is likely a temporary state.
