KINLEY is releasing the music video to “Run with You” the second single from her self titled album released in February 2020. The #FactorFunded project highlights KINLEY’s incredible ability to tell a story through her music and the collaboration with local Island filmmaker, Jenna MacMillian, uses her keen eye to detail and aesthetic to elevate this music video to the next level.
A team of talented east coasters, including camera operator Christopher Ball whose credits include “The Lighthouse” and “Aquaman”, came together to make a music video that is sure to tug on the heart strings of anyone who has ever taken part in the Gold Cup and Saucer Race in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Conceptualized with friend and filmmaker Jenna MacMillian, KINLEY stars in the music video playing her timid, younger self as she encounters the “cool girl” who she longs to be friends with.
“’Run With You’ is a letter to a cool Canadian rock singer I have always admired,” shares KINLEY. “No matter what I am feeling, the sound of her voice can make me drop everything and dance. In this song I wanted to thank her for the amazing music and the way it makes me feel. It is about how I want to hang out with her and not feel or care about anyone else’s judgement,” says KINLEY.
The legendary Gold Cup Race plays backdrop to the music video and includes a gaggle of Gold Cup ambassadors, some frantic reporters, and two beautiful horses. The Gold Cup Race has been happening since the early 1960s and the video includes archival footage from the decades to help really set the scene.
