A banda nova-iorquina DIIV lançará seu quarto álbum — Frog In Boiling Water— em 24 de maio.

Em um comunicado, a banda explica o título:

If you drop a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will of course frantically try to clamber out. But if you place it gently in a pot of tepid water and turn the heat on low, the frog will sink into a tranquil stupor, exactly like one of us in a hot bath, and before long, with a smile on its face, it will unresistingly allow itself to be boiled to death.

And explains the metaphor:

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..

The title Frog in Boiling Water refers to the chapter “The Boiling Frog” from the book “The Story of B” (1996) by American author Daniel Quinn.
