Swiss trip-hop/r’n’b/post-rock heroes dIVA are back with a brand new single called « Neptune ». This song is taken form their upcoming 2nd full-length « AiR » to be released November 27th.
« Neptune » captures both the trip-hop vibe inherent to the project, but also adds a whole new dimension with its groovy R’n’B influences. The video has been shot by Charles Cavalier and we’re proud to show you the amazing result!

We’ve been really quiet since our last release, but we do have some exciting news to share with you!
We’ll release two brand new albums before the end of this shitty year, isn’t that fantastic?
The first one to be revealed is dIVA second album « AiR » which will be out on November the 27th in the form of a gorgeous vinyl! A transparent red vinyl with black marble limited edition will also be available!
These two heralds of a mystical & imaginative trip-hop are back with a new jewel of experimental dark pop mixed with a very personnal blend of 90’s infused R’n’B.
Yeah, you read that right. R’n’ fuckin’B. Yes, like TLC R’n’B, like Justin Timberlake R’n’B. Because, you know, why the fuck not? We’re really not an extreme metal only label . Oh no… We’re more the « good music only » kind of guys, but you already knew that…
During the last two years, the band has collaborated with freaking awesome producer REMOVE in order to give birth to this new masterpiece and the man has clearly turned the band into something new. Of course there still is a main trip-hop frame to their art, but their music now incorporates a lot more diverse influences. In addition to the R’n’B touches here and there, you’ll find some nasty trap beats, stunning dark pop chorus as well as the more folky side you already loved on 1st album « SoL ». We will not lie to you, the production job on this album is nothing less than mind blowing and we cannot wait to share these songs with you!
We’ll stream a first single/videoclip called « Neptune » on September the 30th, so keep your eyes & ears ready!
This single is available for preorder/presave on all digital platforms HERE.
In the meantime, why don’t you go listen to the band previous album on their BANDCAMP?
Their 1st album is still available on black wax right HERE too.
So stay tuned, dear music lovers!
P.S. Someone is telling me that one of the songs on « AiR » has Kehlvin’s singer as a special guest. The little voice is also telling me that said Kehlvin is almost done with the mixing of their new album and that it sounds devastating & that it should be released during Spring 2021. And finally, it seems that the second release we’re going to put out before 2020’s end is a monster of Grind/Black Metal which will obliterate absolutely everything on its way.
Here it is!
Second and strangly moving video for the title « Stars » taken from KØDE latest album « Discrete Transformation ». It has been made in stop motion and it’s really beautiful! Enjoy!
What the band has to say about it:
« What if your spirit was so attracted by the stars that it left your body for awhile? Then, who would you be at this very moment ? What would matter ? This song poetically attempts to wipe the lines between « you » and « me », as this line doesn’t seem as real as the stars. »
