dive 'how long have you known' download


Brooklyn’s Dive will release debut full length Oshin June 26th on Captured Tracks. Contemporaries of fellow New Yorkers Beach Fossils (Dive frontman Zachary Cole Smith is a touring guitarist), they’ve hit the sweet spot between jangle pop and shoegaze. Smith likes him some reverb and certainly knows how to write a hummable, chiming guitar line. Check out lead single “How Long Have You Known”:

It’s been a whirlwind year for Smith, churning out three singles while assembling a band and recording Oshin. The first single, “Sometimes” with b-side “Corvalis,” definitely has a more bedroom tapes feel but you can sense the gift for melody:

Second single “Human,” with b-side “Big Joke,” takes a huge leap production-wise and is really quite pretty:

Last month’s single “Geist” heads into krautrock territory, with reverb rich vocals and guitar washing over a motorik beat:

Not sure how it’s taken me this long to get wise to Dive, but absolutely looking forward to this album and catching them on the road with Frankie Rose.
