Cole from Brooklyn rock band DIIV unveils a live performance of the band's single 'Human' brought to you by Contactmusic and Festival Fever and taken from their debut studio album 'Oshin' which was released in 2012 on the Captured Tracks label.
In the video, band founder Zachary Cole Smith, known informally as Cole, introduces the track and says, 'I wrote it about life' before immediately getting lost in his own dreamy singing and uplifting riffs. We also got sucked into the performance, which was mainly guitar-driven with minimal but stunningly mellow vocals and certainly got us into the festival mood. A perfect tune for relaxing in the summer sun.
Cole was originally part of the indie rock band Beach Fossils before embarking on a new project in Diiv, which was originally named 'Dive', after the 1992 Nirvana track, and enlisting guitarist Andrew Bailey, bassist Devin Ruben Perez and drummer Colby Hewitt. Continuing their festival dates, this year will see them play at one of America's biggest and most loved music festivals, Lollapalooza, where they will share the The Grove stage with the likes of Wavves, MS MR, Azealia Banks, 2 Chainz and Lana Del Rey. They will also hit Canada's Osheaga Festival and the UK's Leeds Festival.
