DIIV (formerly known as Dive) was started in Brooklyn, New York by Beach Fossils guitarist Z. Cole Smith as a solo venture in the later half of 2011. He quickly recruited Devin Ruben Perez (bass), Andrew Bailey (rhythm guitar), and ex-Smith Westerns drummer Colby Hewitt to act as DIIV's live band.
The Provincial Archive
If you thought that The Provincial Archive was a locked room full of dusty legal documents and microfiches, you have been horrendously misled. Despite the nostalgic turn that their name implies, The Provincial Archive's music is forward-thinking rhythmic pop with a nod to folk influences and instrumentation. Equal parts banjos and drum machines with sparkly guitar melodies and layers of ornate hooks and melodies, the band lives in melodic head-swaying territory. Lyrically the band stays close to home with easily accessible modern sentiments in a uniquely Canadian voice, but don't worry, they aren't all about shoveling the snow off the driveway. TPA makes dancing along to banjo electronica easy with their breezy and contented jams.
You’re invited to Tropic Harbour, a utopian space constructed by Mark Berg for peace of mind. These bedroom pops are unabashedly dreamy. Mashed earworms and mint infused hooks blend with swooning guitar knits. The result: a levitating tincture!, a distillation of a pop pantheon that runs the course from Youth Lagoon and Wild Nothing all the way to Cocteau Twins and The Smiths.
