The 2020 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Peter Huang, for his clip for Jessie Reyez's Far Away. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos that were eligible for the prize, including this one from a Toronto pop-rock duo. 


Babygirl - Easy

Babygirl is a duo from Toronto, Ontario composed of Kirsten “Kiki” Frances & Cameron “Bright” Breithaupt. The pair are known for their insightful lyrics and soft calming pop sounds/vocals, bringing the best of bedroom pop/rock to the ears of their listeners.

Their sound carries through in their single and video for Easy, which was directed by Dylan Mitro. However, the video isn’t exactly what you would expect. The visuals open up on a baby pink car (busted up, I might add) slowly rolling in the mud toward a derby. We’re then taken to the shop where the origin story of the car comes into play. We see the duo of Babygirl spray-painting all while the soft sounds of the track play in the background. The viewer is thrown back to the derby where the video takes us through a real life bumper car game.

The juxtaposition of the soft lyrics and the hard core demolition visuals is all thanks to the vision of director Mitro. It gives the viewer the insight into how love can be destructive in more ways than one, and also allows you to take yourself out of the situation at hand with a brand-new perspective.

Tanya Tagaq Plays a Pivotal Role in 'True Detective' Season Finale

The Inuk artist provides vocals for the HBO series' soundtrack, and her song "Submerged" scores a pivotal moment in the season finale, in which she appears as an actress.

The new season of True Detective wrapped up this weekend, and timed with the tense final episode, HBO also released the show's gripping soundtrack. Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq, one of the most celebrated contemporary musicians in Canada, contributed to seven songs on the soundtrack as well as making appearances in the show herself.

Subtitled Night Country, the fourth season of the HBO detective show takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska. It stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, two police officers trying to figure out how the recent bizarre deaths of six scientists are linked to the murder of Iñupiaq activist Annie Kowtok. Through its mystery framing, the show explores themes like colonial violence, environmental destruction, and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
