The 2021 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was recently awarded to Theo Kapodistrias, for his clip for Haviah Mighty’s Thirteen. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos that are eligible for the 2022 prize, including this one from a Toronto indie rock band.


Goodbye Honolulu - Over and Over 

The members of Toronto based band Goodbye Honolulu have been navigating the music scene since they met in high school. The group is passionate about '60s garage rock, '80s new wave, punk, and electronic music, which is reflected in the stylings of their varied songs. Songwriting is a collaborative process for the group, and with no defined frontman they rely on their diversity of sound to carry them to the next level of artistry.

When asked about Over and Over, the group stated that the meaning behind it was pretty clear - "it's about the daily repetitiveness of a monogamous relationship and the ever-growing numbness to things that once made one jealous”

Visuals for Over and Over are directed by group member Emmett S. Webb’s father, Steve Webb, and follow the group as they roam the streets of Toronto on a late night out. With darkened alleys lit by fading neon signs we watch as the group moves from bars to staircases, grooving with the music and displaying this feeling of old-school coolness. Steve Webb was clear about his direction in the song - “The sleazy 70s disco vibe conjured up images of the 1970s.”  We can see Goodbye Honolulu’s influence of new and old with this video, a simple but classic set of visuals.
