DIIV have shared another track from their forthcoming new album Is the Is Are. "Under the Sun" is perhaps the closest they've come to sparkling guitar pop, falling somewhere between late-'80s Echo & the Bunnymen and DIIV's recent tourmates Ride. You can stream it below.

Is the Is Are will be out February 5 via Captured Tracks. DIIV will be in Australia that month for a short tour. All dates are listed below.
