DIIV – Raining On Your Pillow

DIIV has unveiled “Raining on Your Pillow,” the final single from their forthcoming album, Frog in Boiling Water, out this Friday via Fantasy Records. This track, shrouded in murky analog synths and looping guitar riffs, explores the bleak remnants of American imperialism through the eyes of a solitary soldier. In a press release, the band describes it as “menacing, doomed, and strangely hopeful.”

The song’s production, rich with tape loops and a driving rhythm, creates a haunting landscape that mirrors the internal conflict and despair of its protagonist. The accompanying music video further intensifies this atmosphere, providing a visual narrative that complements the song’s thematic depth.

Frog in Boiling Water represents DIIV’s evolution over five tumultuous years since their last album, Deceiver. During this period, the band, composed of Andrew Bailey, Colin Caulfield, Ben Newman, and Zachary Cole Smith, operated as a democratic unit for the first time, navigating complex dynamics that nearly led to their dissolution. The album’s title, inspired by Daniel Quinn’s novel The Story of B, serves as a metaphor for the slow collapse of society under late-stage capitalism.

In addition to “Raining on Your Pillow,” DIIV has previously released tracks like “Soul Net” and “Brown Paper Bag,” the latter topping our Songs of the Week list. The album’s rollout has included innovative methods like mysterious websites and engaging videos, showcasing the band’s creative prowess.

Frog in Boiling Water promises a compelling auditory experience, offering a collection of snapshots from our modern condition.
