Video Premiere: Jenna Kyle’s Quintessential Summer Experience “Summer With You”

Nothing screams summer like joyrides in the open water, with the sun beating down and the wind in your face. Caught in a blissful dream, Jenna Kyle’s “Summer With You” soaks up the sun with a warm tropical beat and imagery that captures summer (and California’s) natural beauty.

No more running back in time
Too many winters east without you
Now we’re on the left side
And I can’t believe I found you
Watch: “Summer With You” – Jenna Kyle


Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering the music video for “Summer With You,” the third single from electro-pop artist Jenna Kyle. Directed by Amy Adair and co-creator Jonathan Eakin, the video is the picture-perfect visualization of summer, a relaxed depiction of ease on the water, in the forest, etc. We find Kyle embracing this special moment, knowing the best memories are truly fleeting, few and far in-between.

No more running back in time
Too many winters east without you
Now we’re on the left side
Don’t ever want to leave without you
No more running back in time
Too many winters east without you
Now we’re on the left side
And I can’t believe I found you
Ooh don’t take me wrong,
don’t take me wrong when I
just want to speak, to speak my mind
Ooh don’t take me wrong
don’t take me wrong when I

“‘Summer With You’ was inspired by my time writing in Venice Beach, CA at (producer) DJ Wes James’ studio (Le Youth),” Kyle explains. “I’ve been living in NYC for nearly eight years now, and after that trip, I sort of fell back in love with the West Coast, so “Summer With You” turned into a bit of an homage to California, and playing with that delicate moment of realizing you’re in love but you’re not sure if you’re ready to commit, or if the feelings are mutual.” Light-hearted and easy to enjoy, “Summer With You” begs its listener to find his and her own happy place – to dive into a fantasy from which we never want to wake.

Kyle continues: “The ‘Summer With You’ music video was inspired by the elements and returning home – it’s a nostalgic sun-drenched summer day.”

Director Adair certainly followed through with that concept: She shares, “When I first heard Jenna Kyle’s track ‘Summer With You,’ I knew immediately showcasing the quintessential summer experience in our video would truly compliment the sunny, happy vibe the track exudes. Not only does the video make you feel nostalgic for those great summer times with friends, but we also had the best time actually creating the video with Jenna and our crew.”

It may be nearing August’s end, but summer isn’t over yet. Nostalgic though it will feel soon, for now Jenna Kyle’s hypnotic song is a call-to-action, a reminder to go out and take advantage of summer’s beauty.
