a three-minute exercise in tension-baiting grooves and explosive noise-addled climaxes; a perfect continuation of the adrenalizing throb-and-squall clamour of their debut lp.
Like a nervous amalgam of Death Grips’ blown out bass frequencies, This Heat’s jittery spasms, and Young Widows’ imposing oratory, DITZ have created a sound that’s equally suited for degraded dance floor gyrations and forward-thinking hardcore shows.
At times a blurry tirade against invasive social media and at other times a celebration of cheap rolling tobacco, “Riverstone” was crafted while the band was on tour and deep in the delirium of road fatigue as an ode to the hallucinatory spirit of their exhaustion. “Riverstone” by DITZ is available today on all digital platforms. DITZ singer Cal Francis explains, “We wrote this track on a day off on our July tour. Caleb had recently bought this sub phatty and had taken it with him so we were trying to find anyway to make it fit in a track. I think we were listening to lots of death grips and hardcore that week. The lyrics were related to whatever we were talking shit about that day. Dirt cheap baccy and annoying invasive TikToks. It’s hard to recall.”
