“Called your phone. Woke up this morning. I didn’t know that you wanted me to go so soon. Now that I’ve seen you in this light and, I realize I got to know someone like you in this lifetime. But I just wanted you the way you needed me to. But you always let me down.” – lyrics

‘Summertime’ tells a bittersweet tale of a young woman who ponders on a challenging relationship that she once shared with her boyfriend at the time.

Apparently, now that she has matured into an independent woman, she realizes that he was wrong for her.

Later, she admits that he was a letdown, even though she loved him the way that he needed her to love him.

“I wrote ‘Summertime’ on a sunny May bank holiday, after feeling the urge to write a song about what I was going through with a guy who was ‘only lonely when the sun shines’. The writing process was really quick, all in all about 20 minutes. And I played it to my family in the garden then and there to hear their thoughts. Afterward, in the studio with my friend and producer Jonah Stevens, I wanted to see if we could incorporate the original mobile phone recording that my uncle had taken in the garden. We figured out a structure for the song whilst keeping as close to the original vibe as possible. I’m so excited that I can share this bittersweet track with the world. A melancholic reflection on ‘summertime’ romance. But with love and warmth at the end where you can hear my family praising the song. It kind of gives me a feeling of—no matter what you go through—family will always be there to nurture and support you.” – Jacklyn

Jacklyn is a name you should remember and an artist you should have on your radar.
