Taken from their recently released debut album ‘Feel Something’, Southern California alt-rock foursome Movements share the video to emotive track ‘Daylily’.

Frontman Patrick Miranda explains how the song evolved from his girlfriend’s battle with depression. “She went through a really tough few years when she was a teenager, dealing with mental illness and an eating disorder, and still struggles with anxiety and depression today. An important part of her recovery, much like anyone else with a mental illness, was working with a therapist. Her therapist described her recovery as an up and down process. Basically, there would be a lot of bad days, but there would also be good days. She called the good ones her ‘pink cloud days’ and the goal was to eventually have those outnumber the bad ones. When she was going through another tough time last year I wrote this song for her.”

The Kurt Duffy-directed clip is set in a wooded area of autumnal hues as we follow Hannah, one of the band’s fans, at the centre of the story.

“Adding that little touch of colour into the concept of the video was really important for us,” adds Miranda. “We wanted to really drive home the ethereal, dream like state that Hannah would be acting out. A few full memory cards, two cans of paint, and four hours later we had what we needed to make the video. It was stressful, it was crazy, and it was harder than it needed to be, but it was a blast and our work paid off.”
