photographer Theo Wenner put together a double-barreled video that includes both this song and "Daffodils
." Both tunes feature vocals by Kevin Parker. The clip reflects the different nature of the songs with a lazy summer afternoon and images of California sunsets transitioning into nighttime scenes of partying and meetings in back alleys. Speaking to Rolling Stone
, Ronson said:
"'Summer Breaking' is probably my personal favorite on Uptown Special
. And seeing as Kevin and Tame Impala are so hot right now, we thought we could really make the most of this 'hotness; by making a video for not one but two of his songs from Uptown Special,
'Summer Breaking' and 'Daffodils.' Theo Wenner made a beautiful video that really captures (and goes beyond) what we were envisioning when Michael Chabon wrote those haunting lyrics."
