DIIV Release New Single ‘Raining on Your Pillow’

    DIIV have shared one more single ahead of the release of their new album, Frog in Boiling Water, this Friday via Fantasy Records. ‘Raining on Your Pillow’ follows earlier cuts ‘Brown Paper Bag’‘Soul-Net’, ‘Everyone Out’, and ‘Frog in Boiling Water’. Check out a video for it below.

    “‘Raining on your Pillow’ is a song which brings to mind the shameful past (and present) of American imperialism,” the band explained in a statement. “Lost in a terrifying landscape, a lone soldier ruminates on the existence of a landscape of his own far removed from conflict. Does it matter if this place is real or not? Is a false sense of hope enough to give our lives meaning in the midst of despair? A looping guitar figure plays underneath a driving rhythm in a cloud of murky atmosphere of analog synths and tape loops. Menacing, doomed, and strangely hopeful.”
