Single of the Day: DIIV "Dopamine" (2015)

Dream pop/shoegaze heroes DIIV created a stunning debut album Oshin, released in 2012, and have captured a following worldwide. It’s been a long wait, but the first taste of their forthcoming album Is The Is Are is finally here in the form of the track “Dopamine”. Atmospheric, dreamy but also catchy, the new single ticks all of the boxes, and makes us hopeful they’ll be on their way to Australia soon, after their cancellation of Big Day Out 2014. Check out the new single here:

Feature: Splendour 2013 speculation - who will or won't perform?

Will they or won’t they? While we will never be sure who is playing a festival until the promoters actually release a line-up, it’s always fun to speculate and throw around any rumours that come up. The next big festival yet to announce their line-up is Splendour In The Grass. With the line-ups for Primavera, Summersonic and Coachella festivals already out there, it’s time to salivate over who will may (or have already actually confirmed) continue down here fore Australia’s premier winter festival.
