Chicago alt-rock crew Narrative revealed an emotional new single and music video “Diamond” last week, featuring a sound that is both delectably smooth and empowering. Loss and grief unfortunately hits each of us at some point throughout our lives and Narratives deep melodies gently touch the heart of each “Diamond” listener. “No one ever heals without guidance/becoming a diamond” brings a positive message of community and love into this tough topic.
“The song is about struggling with your own mentality and having to hide behind a “disguise” or “mask” to make your way through life.” said the band when asked about the singles meaning. Weathered and eroded, diamonds form only under high-pressure circumstances, a metaphor of life struggles that hold potential to mold those experiencing them into a stronger and overall better person.
