The 2019 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Kevan Funk, for his clip for Belle Game’s Low. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos, including this one from a Hamilton-based indie duo.


Family of Things - Harm

This Hamilton, Ontario-based indie band has a unique sound that combines sensitive songwriting, boundless vocals, rhythmic integrity, and quality production. 

In an interview, the band says that “Harm is a song of recognition, recognizing the people and the things in our lives that break us down, fracture our identity and poses the question: Why we are doing nothing about it?

"Why do we do that to ourselves? 

"Why do we let people in who do us harm? 

"Why do we do things that wear us down?

"It's contemplative and reflective, as we are still searching for the answer ourselves."

The music video features two people in a relationship, tackling those very questions with each other — and as the metaphorical mirrors indicate, with themselves, as well.
