DIIV – “Dopamine”

Jangly New York dream-rockers DIIV have spent a long, long time working on the follow-up to their 2012 debut Oshin. Earlier this year, they announced that that album, Is The Is Are, would finally come out sometime this year. And now it looks like they were telling the truth. Today, DIIV shared the album’s first single, a lovely fluttering track called “Dopamine.” The song has that early-’90s reverb glow to it, and it manages to be big and bright and friendly without ever piercing its own meticulously created vibe or smacking us over the head with a big, obvious melody. Listen to it below.

Is The Is Are is set to arrive by year’s end on Captured Tracks, and “Dopamine” is out on iTunes now. Read our feature on DIIV frontman Zachary Cole Smith here.
