Alternative-rock quartet MOVEMENTS have released a new video for their song “Daylily” exclusively on Earmilk. Directed and edited by lead-singer Patrick Miranda and Kurt Cuffy, the video backs up the inspiring lyrics that singerMiranda wrote for his girlfriend as she was struggling with depression and mental illness. The track is a fan favorite off the band’s debut LP Feel Something.
The video centers around a real-life fan of MOVEMENTS named Hannah who is seen in a sprawling forest enjoying a “pink cloud summer.” Beautiful and eye-catching, the video captures the power of the good days that occasionally occur in the midst of depression, with the goal being that they outnumber the bad days.
In the Earmilk exclusive, Miranda gives a statement about the inspiration for the song. “My current girlfriend is the inspiration for this song. [During her ongoing treatment for mental illness] there would be a lot of bad days, but there would also be good days. She called the good ones her ‘pink cloud days.’ When she was going through another tough time last year I wrote this song for her.”
MOVEMENTS band members Patrick Miranda, Ira George, Austin Cressey, and Spencer York have released their debut album Feel Something to critical acclaim, earning the esteemed #2 spot on Billboard’s Top New Artist Chart.
