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 Toronto post-punk combo with a notable guest.
Absolutely Free ft. U.S. Girls - Currency
The band Absolutely Free brings a psychedelic, ‘80s-infused music video to their track Currency while collaborating with U.S. Girls (aka Meg Remy).
In an interview, the band said, “Currency is a nervy post-punk shuffle that gradually blossoms into a dense cosmic house track featuring Meg Remy of U.S. Girls on lead vocals. The lyrics contemplate how social frameworks like gender performance are built, and finds Absolutely Free reckoning with privilege and how to best use their social capital.”
Currency is filled with ambient synths and nifty beats to create a disco hit that sets the tone for the avant-garde video.
