DJ/producer Felix Cartal teams-up with Kiiara to release a brand-new single “Happy Hour” which is currently available to download/stream via Physical Presents.

Felix Cartal – Happy Hour

Opening with the uplifting vocals of songstress Kiiara, “Happy Hour” is a pop-infused dance record that is both irresistibly catchy and inspiring.  The joyous release marks Felix Cartal’s first track of 2021 and hints at what is to come from in the coming year.

The idea and lyrics for this song were created during a writing session in Norway. I think my time in Scandinavia was really beneficial to my songwriting process because they have this effortless approach to pop writing. We had a breakthrough when we started thinking of juxtaposing ‘Happy Hour’ with darker lyrics. It kind of all fell together once we figured out how to attack it, and I dub it my ‘uplifting loser anthem.’ It felt sort of pop, but sort of unconventional, and to have Kiiara feature on it was unreal because I felt that her pop music has that same unpredictable quality.

“Felix and I have been meaning to work together on an original song of our own for years. I’ve always been a fan of his work. I remember him sending me a remix of my song ‘Feels’ a few years back and I was blown away. I’m really excited about our new song ‘Happy Hour.’ It’s a melodramatic emo anthem (lol that’s both of our specialties).”
