Debut Video For “Daylily”
Lead-Singer Patrick Miranda Highlights The Struggles Of Mental Illness And The Inspiring Power Of “Pink Cloud Days”
Video Directed And Edited By Patrick Miranda And Kurt Cuffy
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 singer Miranda 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.
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.
MOVEMENTS are currently on tour with Knuckle Puck, and dates in 2018 are to be announced soon.

Music and emotion share a timeless physiological, psychological, and spiritual bond. A chord, a melody, or a lyric can lift spirits and inspire. Movements achieve that sort of reaction on their full-length debut, Feel Something [Fearless Records]. The Southern California quartet—Patrick Miranda [vocals], Ira George [guitar], Spencer York [drums], and Austin Cressey [bass]—immediately connect by opening up. That musical empathy quietly launched Movements on an upward trajectory in 2015. Formed by longtime friends, the group landed a deal with Fearless Records after just one local gig. Produced by Will Yip [Tigers Jaw, Title Fight, Turnover, Citizen], their debut EP, Outgrown Things, became a fan favorite. Acclaimed by the likes of Alternative Press and New Noise Magazine, songs like “Nineteen” and “Kept” each respectively amassed over 800K Spotify streams and counting as they have toured nonstop. Along the way, the boys started working on what would become Feel Something before returning to the studio with Yip in February 2017. In the sessions, their signature style crystallized and coalesced. Ultimately, Movements bring emotion to life in each note.
