The 2019 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded recently to Kevan Funk, for his clip for Belle Game’s Low. We will continue to profile the nominated videos, including this one from quirky singer/songwriter Peter Sager. Slaight Music is Patron Sponsor for the Prism Prize.


Homeshake - Just Like My

To accompany his dreamy new single, Just Like My, Homeshake (aka Peter Sager) delivers a video, which is in equal measures ethereal and downright peculiar, or as Sager himself described it, “calm and weird.”

The video (a collaboration between Canadian director Oliver McGarvey and German artist Eric Winkler) begins in a cold, desolate forest. Our protagonist, an almost nymph-like creature, dressed in bright pink pants and a white puffer jacket, aimlessly wanders. But she’s not alone. As she meanders about, tall figures draped in tattered rags (referred to as “Spirits” in the video credits), dance around her. They pique her curiosity, she gets close, examines them, she wants to know more -  but in the same instance, she’s frightened by them, quietly bothered by their existence.

Are the bedraggled figures forest monsters? A figment of her imagination? Embodiments of ghosts from her past? Director McGarvey provides the viewer with a lot of space to interpret them as you wish.
