Andy Jenkins – Illuminated (Official Music Video)



Andy Jenkins Gets "Illuminated" in His Newest Music Video

If your heart fluttered in the closing scene ofTo All the Boys I've Loved Before, just as Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky finally kissed and the beat came in, you might owe Andy Jenkins a small thank you. The Richmond-based musician co-wrote "Cool Out," the 2019 indie pop tune backing that romantic moment, with Matthew E. White and DJ Harrison.

Today, Jenkins' music soundtracks another kind of work—a new music video for his song, "Illuminated." The visuals were shot on Super 8 millimeter film by photographer and director Shawn Brackbill, whose fashion credits include magazines likeELLEandCR Fashion Book.

The video was recorded at Jenkin's show at Mercury Lounge in NYC this summer. He didn't plan on releasing an official music video for this track, but he was so pleased with Brackbill's footage that he had to use it. "He shot it and played it to the song, and without editing, it kinda works," Jenkins tellsBAZAAR.com.

"Illuminated," a buoyant and summery composition, is "about somebody coming back into your life that you maybe would rather not, but you still don't mind," Jenkins explains. The track appears on his debut album,Sweet Bunch, a warm, '70s rock-inspired work that released in June.

"Definitely with this record, I wanted to convey a sense of joy, but joy kind of tempered with the reality of being a human, and of life, that sort of thing. I like pop music that's accessible but tells the truth in the lyrics," Jenkins explained. "That's my goal."

Prior to going solo, Jenkins co-wrote with artists including his longtime collaborator, friend, and Spacebomb label head, Matthew E. White. It wasn't until around 2012 and 2013 that he says he intentionally started writing music for himself.

"I've enjoyed the transition. It's nice to sort of have control over different aspects of the project, the artwork and all that kind of stuff," Jenkins says. "So, that aspect of sort of stepping out in public has been cool."

But his collaborative days weren't over, as several works including "Cool Out " with White and Harrison have shown. The latter two co-produced the track, and Natalie Prass lent her inimitable voice to the recording.

"I've written in a lot of different ways with Matt, like sitting down in the room, or just giving him lyrics, or working on melodies and lyrics at the same time. But that one, I sent him lyrics from a song and those kind of worked into the final thing," Jenkins says.

"Natalie I've known since high school, too. So it was kind of a trip to hear words you wrote, sung by your friends from high school. Like a high school romance," he added of theTo All the Boyscollab.

For those wondering, yes, he's seen the film. "I've watched the movie and I'm proud to be part of it," he says.

Jenkins says he's already setting aside songs for his next album, but you can catch him on tour starting next week. Check out the dates here:
