Toronto, ON – November 20, 2017 – Alternative-rock quartet, MOVEMENTS, have released a new video for their song, Daylily, a fan favourite off their new album, Feel Something. The video backs up the inspiring lyrics that singer Patrick Miranda wrote for his girlfriend as she was struggling with depression and mental illness.
The video centres 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.
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 released their debut album Feel Something to critical acclaim, earning the esteemed #2 spot on Billboard’s Top New Artist Chart.
In addition, MOVEMENTS placed on various other Billboard charts, including #45 Top Current Albums, #190 Billboard 200, #6 Current Alternative Albums, #14 Current Rock Albums, #17 LP Vinyl Albums, #28 Top Internet (D2C – MerchNow), #31 Current Digital Albums, #36 Overall Digital Albums and #59 Current Physical Albums.
