Arizona-based musician Drew Tyler, aka Fly Felix, is here to check in on you during the first week of Mental Health Awareness Month.
Tyler strolls around some beautiful scenery in remote Arizona while he sings “I Hope You’re Alright” and FaceTimes his fellow bandmates. The band members, each playing along remotely, bring the song together. The melodic instrumentation and comforting vocals get you grooving and the video shows a group of friends who are always by each other’s sides even if they’re miles apart.
The result is a catchy indie rock song that feels simple yet complicated all at once. “I Hope You’re Alright” was co-produced by Adam Thein from the bands Slow Pulp and Post Animal. The band says they derive their entire aesthetic from the Rider-Waite tarot series, pulling inspiration from the various cards.
“The song’s primary intention is to provide an opportunity to check in with our community, reconnect with loved ones, and make new friends,” Tyler says. “The Four of Swords tarot card as seen in the single artwork represents a hopeful rebirth after an extended isolation.”
For “I Hope You’re Alright,” Fly Felix encourages you to support Mental Health America, and they even started a fundraiser for the organization (donate here).
Be the first to watch the video for “I Hope You’re Alright” from Fly Felix’s upcoming EP of the same name out June 24.
