The Indie Song of the Day comes from Chicago's pop punk band Cliffhanger. They just dropped a new lyric video for their song, "The Oaks."



The song explodes with energy. The band self-produced the melodic, high-energy track at Flashpoint Chicago and tasked Michael Govaere for mixing and mastering.

Vocalist Matt Meindl reflects, "'The Oaks' is a very personal song for me. When I was in college, I felt as if I didn't belong because I wasn't focused on playing music. Creating music had always been a huge priority growing up, but no one at college even knew about my musical background. It was very disheartening, but I was able to stay rooted and true to myself. Even in times where I felt like I was disassociating myself from my past, I kept my focus to follow my passion."

The lyric video for "The Oaks" was created by the talented Cecelia Hotzler. The video includes dark artistic time lapse images which evokes the feeling of being alone in a new environment while fighting to stay true to yourself.

The quintet previously released their eponymous EP which has generated over 55,000 streams since being released on Spotify.
