DIIV are an American rock band from Brooklyn, New York City. Formed in 2011, DIIV started as Zachary Cole Smith‘s solo recording project.

While touring in support of Oshin, DIIV played several unreleased songs live, including “Dust”, “Loose Ends” and “Under the Sun”. As of July 2014, Smith had written over 150 new songs since the release of Oshin.
On March 9, 2015, DIIV began recording their second album, Is the Is Are, at Strange Weather Recording Studio in Brooklyn. Is the Is Are is scheduled to be released in October 2015.
