The 2022 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was recently awarded to Mustafa, for his clip for his own track, Ali. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos that were eligible for the 2022 prize, including this one from a Toronto pop/R&B artist.


Alex Porat - Dimension

Alex Porat is a Toronto-based pop/R &B singer. Her most recent single, Sensitive, came out in May 2022 and her first album, Miss Sick World, was released in 2021. 

The music video for Dimension, directed by Iris Kim and released in 2021, is a disco pop dream. The video is all about wanting someone you can’t have but hoping that maybe in another world you are with that person. The video starts off with Alex dancing in a darkly lit red-hued room. The camera is spinning around giving a topsy-turvy effect that is synced up to the music in the background of the melody. The second setting in this video is a brightly lit blue-hued scene with clouds - it is the total opposite of the darker lit setting which plays with the ‘being in another dimension’ aspect of the song.

Throughout the video, Alex’s dance movements work seamlessly with the melody and the various camera angles. The same dance movement continued perfectly from the red-hued scenes to the blue-hued scenes. It is a testament to not only the direction of the video but the amazing editing. Overall, this video is eye-catching and you simply can’t look away. 

You can listen to Alex Porat on various audio streaming sites.

New and Upcoming Canadian Albums: Mother Mother, Corb Lund, Allie X & More

Artists with new releases out this week include Philip Sayce, Shaina Hayes, Royal Tusk and Church of Trees.

It's a busy week for new Canadian releases. Funky Montreal duo Chromeo are back with their new album Adult Contemporary, while catalogue classics from Stan Rogers and Fucked Up are also upcoming. Rising singer-songwriter Abigail Lapell, Wolf Parade member Dan Boeckner and the soulful Loony have also announced upcoming release dates.

Album of the Week: Mother Mother, Grief Chapter

Mother Mother are veterans in the Canadian rock scene, but they've had one of the more interesting renaissance arcs of the last few years. The Vancouver band found an unlikely new audience on TikTok in 2020 when their song "Hayloft" went viral. They made a sequel, "Hayloft II," and that went gold in the U.S. They've now had 7+ billion global streams. That background informs their new ninth album Grief Chapter, but it doesn't feel like a retread. It's informed by heavy themes like death and mourning, which is something you might expect from a project in its third decade, but it's not a dour drag. Instead, Ryan Guldemond and the band lean even harder into their nervy energy, threading a needle between shiny radio rock and playfully off-kilter 2000s indie. - Richard Trapunski
