Mark Ronson and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker bring sunshine and hints of summer to the middle of winter with their hazy new clip for the pair’s Uptown Special collaborations, “Summer Breaking” and “Daffodils.”
Directed by Theo Wenner, who is the infamous photographer behind Adele, Miley Cyrus and Keith Richards, brings a colorful retro video to the moody lyrical tracks. Featuring model and Snapchat personality Sarah McDaniel, the video finds her on vacation with her family before she runs off to explore and meets a new love interest. As the whimsical “Summer Breaking” transitions into the funkier groove of “Daffodils,” the set turns from day to night and ends with her dancing freely with a group of kids.

"This video is something that Mark and I have been discussing on and off for a year prior to making it," Theo Wenner says of the clip. "It came about in a very abstract way. We had long conversations just about color and times of day. I had it in my head the whole time that we should set it in the tropics. That's the place, those are the colors that I pictured listening to the two songs."
