DIIV Deliver The Brooding ‘Raining On Your Pillow,’ The Final Pre-Album Single From ‘Frog In Boiling Water’

We’re now just a few days from the release of Frog In Boiling Water, DIIV’s latest album. Before the project drops, the group has come through with one more advance single: “Raining On Your Pillow.”

The band says of the song:

“‘Raining On Your Pillow’ is a song which brings to mind the shameful past (and present) of American imperialism. Lost in a terrifying landscape, a lone soldier ruminates on the existence of a landscape of his own far removed from conflict. Does it matter if this place is real or not? Is a false sense of hope enough to give our lives meaning in the midst of despair? A looping guitar figure plays underneath a driving rhythm in a cloud of murky atmosphere of analog synths and tape loops. Menacing, doomed, and strangely hopeful.”

DIIV previously said of the album as a whole, “We understand the metaphor to be one about a slow, sick, and overwhelmingly banal collapse of society under end-stage capitalism, the brutal realities we’ve maybe come to accept as normal. That’s the boiling water and we are the frogs. The album is more or less a collection of snapshots from various angles of our modern condition which we think highlights what this collapse looks like and, more particularly, what it feels like.”
