Depending on the lifestyle that you live, its simple that every hour can be “Happy Hour”. On our latest trip to Physical Presents we are checking out a brand new music video for “Happy Hour” the latest single from Felix Cartal and Kilara. Felix has been busy, with multiple standalone productions with other producers including successful producer Kaskade. Felix will also be touring internationally so everyone will be able to see it sometime soon. Due to his most recent success, Felix has even garnered over 45 million streams over on his Spotify! Felix Cartal has been a consistent staple in the Modern Neon cycle, winning us over with his previous hits “Over It” and “Love Me“. Clearly, Felix, you are doing something right and we want to keep seeing Felix Cartal find success and grow as an artist. Kiiiara immediately hit the ground running, with her debut single “Gold” reaching #5 on Billboard’s US Top 40 and amassing over 675 million worldwide streams. She has now amassed over 2 billion streams globally and across all platforms and has no intention of slowing down.
“The energy of the song is so go-go-go that the visuals we created had to be on the same level. We decided the best move for this was to create a simple surreal narrative because we could take the viewer anywhere and it didn’t need to make sense; as long as the world looked cool, we were on the right track.” – Director Kasey Lum
“Kasey and I have been making videos together since the beginning of both of our artistic careers. I believe the first thing we did was around 2011, possibly even earlier. I always feel fortunate that I’m able to create art for a living, but it’s even better to create art with your friends for a living. That being said, the hardest part of videos is getting them to match the mood of the song, and I feel like this one does that better than anything we’ve done before.” – Felix Cartal
When you had a major pop gem like “Happy Hour” on your hands, there was no way that you couldn’t give the track the music video treatment. Helmed by director Kasey Lum, “Happy Hour”‘s music video takes the viewer back to the world of dive bars and drunken karaoke sessions, which many of us have missed during the world reset. With the allure of mysterious blue shots and the possibility of great stories from poor decisions, the energy that Felix and Kilara show in this music video is intoxicatingly enticing. We need more of this energy in our life, and can’t wait until we experience these moments once again very soon.
