The 2021 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was 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 much-heralded Toronto singer/songwriter. 

Ralph - Love Potion 


Singer-songwriter Ralph hails from Toronto. Her style has been described as a blend of pop, synth, disco, and smooth soul. In 2018, she released an album entitled A Good Girl and in 2021 she released an EP entitled Gradience. Ralph’s most recent single is Gasoline - it came out back in January 2022.

Ralph’s music video for her song Love Potion is wonderfully weird. The video has a retro and extraterrestrial aesthetic which we can easily pick up on throughout. The makeup, costumes, set design and lighting all fit perfectly with the futuristic vibe, and it’s a very entertaining aesthetic. There are four main settings in this video. We have Ralph in her spaceship, Ralph making the love potion in a lab, the spaceship in space, and the alien planet where her alien boyfriend resides. The video aligns with the lyrics, tells a story - it’s almost like a very short film - and there’s never a dull moment while watching. Overall, the video is futuristic and weird but in the best way possible.

Neil Young's Love Earth Tour Will Take Him Throughout Canada

The Canadian icon is bringing his Love Earth Tour with Crazy Horse to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Burnaby. He's also added a second date at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, accompanying the release of his new album, FU##IN' UP.

Neil Young is showing some love to Canadian cities on his Love Earth tour. While his original tour announcement featured just one stop in his home country, in Toronto's Budweiser Stage, he's now announced dates in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., as well as a second show at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, in response to "incredible fan demand."

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
