Best New Track: "Under The Sun" - DIIV

DIIV mastermind Zachary Cole Smith's hardships have been publicly well-documented. His wild relationship with Sky Ferreira, substance abuse, arrests - all of it has undoubtedly given shape to the New York band's hazy shoegaze offerings to date.

Their brand new single "Under The Sun," on the other hand, sounds exactly like its title; it's Smith at his most exposed, his most triumphant - which he attributes to being in love. On the bright, guitar-driven single and his path towards redemption, Smith commented on Tumblr, "I don’t think I would have made it out if it weren’t for love." You'd be hard-pressed to consume the airy track in full and not find traces of that sentiment.

Stay tuned for DIIV's upcoming double LP, Is The Is Are, out February 5 via Captured Tracks.
