Prism Prize Video: Petra Glynt - New Growth

By External Source

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 Montreal experimental pop artist.


Petra Glynt - New Growth

Petra Glynt is the experimental pop project of multidisciplinary artist Alexandra Mackenzie. A drummer in bands, noise improviser and an operatically trained singer, Mackenzie has turned producer and songwriter, to much acclaim.

This unusual music video is filled with spontaneous dancing blossoming flowers that act as symbols. It ends with Glynt driving off with someone else in the driver’s seat, and the final scene is of Glynt standing in the fields looking into the camera as the song fades out.

When talking about performing, Glynt said in an interview that “when I play live, I play solo with a sampler, floor tom, and rototoms, and of course, I sing. It’s loud and athletic with a dripping heart.”

The Beaches Bring "Blame Brett" to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

The Toronto quartet brought their viral single into their late night TV debut.

Following the viral success of "Blame Brett" in 2023, The Beaches have made their late night TV debut, performing their naming-and-blaming single on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Though the Toronto band has been together for a decade, winning a 2018 Juno for Breakthrough Artist following their debut album, last yearmarked a watershed moment for the quartet. They traded their heavier rock sound for sleek new wave guitar tones and took back control of their career, deciding to release their new album, Blame My Ex, independently. (They co-wrote the album with Canadian artist and songwriter Lowell, who also has a credit on Beyoncé's newest hit.)
