Temperatures are heating up outside and on the small screen with this collection of 5 music videos that will transport viewers to the vibrant and exhilarating energy of summer in the city. Grab some sunscreen and your friends, and let’s get outside.


Antoniya & Ouri - 1st Bite 

Antoniya & Ouri’s video for 1st Bite, directed by Derek Branscombe, is a song and video for the irreverent party girls everywhere. Kicking off in the streets of Saigon, Vietnam, the two girls are followed by a young man trying to get their attention. The lyrics and the visuals work together to create an out-of-this-world party scene while the two sing about a girl that all the boys' flock to. They are in full summer mode as they rampage through the city, causing trouble and having a good time doing it.

Ada Lea - Hometown (edit) 

The perfect “roll your windows down, and drive” song can be found in Ada Lea’s Hometown (edit). The music video, directed by Ana-Maria Espino Trudel, sees Ada in front of a large canvas painting away as the track plays behind her. The colours are vibrant and saturated with a juxtaposition of the old-film camera look we get when shots of Ada walking on the street come into play, creating art in the world around her.

Hayden Desser - On a Beach Feat. Feist  

Nothing says summer like a trip to the beach. Hayden’s video for On a Beach featuring Fiest, directed by Yael Staav, reminds you to take a moment and recall the days when you were carefree and enjoying life. The video depicts Hayden and Feist speaking to a therapist (played by none other than Steve Buscemi), and we are then taken to the beach where the couple reconnects and reminds themselves why they fell in love in the first place

Neil Young's Love Earth Tour Will Take Him Throughout Canada

The Canadian icon is bringing his Love Earth Tour with Crazy Horse to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Burnaby. He's also added a second date at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, accompanying the release of his new album, FU##IN' UP.

Neil Young is showing some love to Canadian cities on his Love Earth tour. While his original tour announcement featured just one stop in his home country, in Toronto's Budweiser Stage, he's now announced dates in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., as well as a second show at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, in response to "incredible fan demand."

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
