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 an acclaimed Toronto indie-pop artist.
MorMor - Outside
MorMor is the alias of 27-year-old singer, producer and instrumentalist Seth Nyquist from Toronto, Ontario. He draws inspiration from his everyday life and surroundings in his own environments. MorMor decided on his stage name from his grandmother’s nicknames for him.
The video shows clowns running around, with close shots of them while they are singing. The clowns are used because they appear to be happy but have a darker more sad side to them. The song and the video explore alienation, depression and the feeling that you don’t belong.
The clip has accumulated nearly 2 million YouTube views.
