The Indie Song of the Day comes from Chicago pop punk band Cliffhanger. They just dropped a new video for their song “Diane.”
Cliffhanger self-produced the song at Flashpoint Chicago and partnered with Michael Govaere (ex-Every Avenue) for mixing and mastering.
The song is about the struggle of growing up, separation, and coping with the loss of a loved one.
Cliffhanger’s Matt Meindl reflects, “’Diane’ is an extremely personal song for me as it is named after my late mother. She passed away when I was young and I often had to deal with being alone. I had to learn to grow up fast while keeping a level head.”
The music video for “Diane” was directed by Matt Adema. The video emphasizes separation – there are no scenes of the entire band together – it also relates to the realization of what’s going on in the world. The video also relates to the harsh realization at our current global environment.
In addition to watching the video, be sure to add the band’s music on Spotify, Apple Music, and other popular DSPs.
