Prism Prize Video: Mac DeMarco - Here Comes the Cowboy

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 very popular and Polaris Music Prize shortlisted songsmith.

Mac DeMarco - Here Comes the Cowboy

Mac DeMarco is a singer-songwriter from Edmonton, Alberta. Shortly after finishing high school in 2008, DeMarco moved from his hometown to Vancouver and released Heat Wave, a collection of songs he wrote and recorded while bored in his new surroundings.

His fourth album, Here Comes the Cowboy, is filled with mellow tracks and visually captivating videos.

DeMarco said in an interview that he “wanted to make something greasy” and this song proves just that. “But I think anybody that actually had some funk to them would be like, ‘What the f*** is this, Mac?'”
