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 popular Toronto female rock band.
The Beaches: Snake Tongue
Juno-nominated band The Beaches are an edgy rock group from Toronto starring Jordan Miller, Kylie Miller, Eliza Enman-McDaniel, and Leandra Earl. Their single Snake Tongue shows what it means to let go of the unwanted, in this case by lighting it on fire.
Jordan Miller said in an interview, "I wrote Snake Tongue about our own experiences, but hope that it empowers women who are constantly on the receiving end of unwanted attention to take back some control in small but meaningful ways."
A unique aspect of this video is that there is a vertical version to watch on a mobile device. Snake Tongue is off the 2019 EP The Professional.
