As announced previously : Swiss indie-pop/dark-folk/trip-hop trio dIVA just officially released its debut full-length album ‘SOL’ for LP & Digital formats through Division Records (HEXIS, Impure Wilhelmina, Unfold…) and entire streaming on Bandcamp and on the main legal platforms.

The 5 songs on this album, which happens to be only the first part of a diptych whose sequel will come out at the end of 2018, refer exclusively to the rocky planets of the solar system. The music is a faithful reflection of the telluric aspect of these astral bodies, through a music borrowing so much from smooth dream-pop and throbbing trip-hop.

Some incursions into the dark-folk and drone burned territories make the final mixture a formidable composite of efficiency, irremediably causing total fascination and immediate adhesion. The themes dealt with in the lyrics, directly related to the planets from which they are inspired, are depicted as dark & rich metaphors, inviting an introspective journey from which no one will emerge unscathed.

One thus gives oneself with pleasure to these original and tortuous compositions, in which the talent and inspiration of their authors shine like a star in the remotest abyss of the galaxy.

…For the record…

The project dIVA is born in 2013 when the guitarist Pierre-Emmanuel and the singer Lisa-Marie first meet. The two musicians soon discover a common desire to express themselves artistically in a formation that can grant total freedom and a true evolutionary vision.

The conceptual framework of their first album is immediately apparent. The solar system theme will be exploited to give birth to compositions continuously oscillating between dream-pop, trip-hop and darkfolk. When Marc, producer and sound designer of genius, joined them at the end of 2015, the band is ready to record his first album.

But with the addition of a third member, the ideas expand so much that the concept album originally
envisaged is divided into two distinct parts, which will be released separately at a distance of one year.

For fans of Chelsea Wolfe, Mogwai, Portishead, Massive Attack
