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 psych-pop combo. 


Mother Tongues - Let You Down

Mother Tongues is a psycho-pop group based in Toronto, ON. The group, composed of members Lukas Cheung, Charise Aragoza, Konrad Karczewkski, Nick Kervin, and Hannah Bussiere Kim, has been prominent in the Toronto music scene for over 5 years. They were brought together through their mutual love of everything from 60’s French pop, to break beats, kraut rock, and so much more.

Their song Let You Down follows all the traditional workings of a pop song with a touch of nostalgia. The visuals, directed and produced by artist Boy Wonder, follow the same nostalgia-packed idea, with a twist. Everything seems normal at first glance, the band can be seen in different areas of a beautiful forest playing their instruments and singing along to the track. Until a militia-like group, start walking through the forest, Lukas Cheung is in a car having some pretty intimate moments with some dandelions, and drum catches on fire. 

The video plays into the song, as it starts off as one thing but finishes in the complete opposite direction, leaving the viewer wondering what will happen next.
