Felix Cartal and Kiiara releases the official music video for their latest stunning collaboration ‘Happy Hour‘
The new music video for ‘Happy Hour‘ is taking a step back into dive bars, singing karaoke from the drunken heart, followed by magical, immemorable adventures. Felix Cartal entices us with mysterious sparkling blue shots and the promise of bad choices meeting great memories. Happy reckless abandon calls to the spirited and adventurous crew who are ready to lose themselves in the unknown.
Felix Cartal shares: “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 has collaborated with several major artists such as Kaskade, R3HAB, and Gallant. He has also created official remixes for the likes of Selena Gomez, Zedd, Galantis, Dillon Francis, MØ, Ellie Goulding, Diplo, Anne-Marie & Doja Cat as well as Daya & Shallou‘s ‘Older‘.
Director Kasey Lum shares, “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.“
The new single ‘Happy Hour‘ is the first release since Kiiara‘s debut album, Lil Kiiwi (October 2020) while Kiiara‘s breakout single ‘Gold‘ reached no. 5 on Billboard’s US Top 40 charts and over 675 million streams alone.
