"Euphoria is a song about feeling alone, but realizing that so many other people are alone, so in a way, we're all alone together. It's a symbol of finding the beauty in the simple things about life, whether happy or dark, there will always be someone going through it somewhere else in the world. The song represents freedom and fear, love and loss, and finding happiness within yourself.
This remix is a different approach on the original Euphoria off of The Dream and The Deception in that it is much more club-like and uptempo, highlighting the euphoric happiness underneath the story of the song.
The visual for this song started off as a teaser for my birthday party, or should I say unbirthday party, Down The Rabbit Hole April 12th. I bought the Alice dress for the party and filmed some footage at a park in Irvine with m.haight to hype up the event. After we got back that night and were watching the footage back on his TV, I was amazed by the slow motion shots and knew it needed to be used for something more than a party teaser. Since the remix is also dropping April 12, I thought it would be a perfect idea to combine the two together in order to make a nice visual for it. My other option was to use a Tumblr gif, so this worked out much better! Also, if you love the original version, don't worry because the band plans to do a video for that one as well in the future!
Performing this remix live is always a blast and I love dancing with everyone in the crowd. It's always a fun song to groove to, and it's more of a challenging song to sing so I love to get to hit those notes, baby!"
