2022 Prism Prize Eligible Video: Babygirl - You Were In My Dream Last Night 

The 2022 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was recently awarded to Mustafa, for his clip for his own track, Ali. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos that were eligible for the 2022 prize, including this one from a Toronto pop/rock group.

Babygirl - You Were In My Dream Last Night 

Babygirl is a Toronto-based pop-rock band made up of friends Kirsten “Kiki” Frances and Cameron “Bright” Breithaupt. Their dreamy song You Were in My Dream Last Night is a single which was released in February 2021 and is featured on their six-track EP Losers Weepers.

Mainly set around Niagara Falls’ intergalactic-themed restaurant Flying Saucer, the music video for You Were in My Dream Last Night is full of alien-eske vibes and dreamy sequences. The video starts off outside the Flying Saucer and what seems to be the beginning of a date. A car ride around town in the nighttime is our next scene - which follows the lyrics being sung.

We see some really interesting shots of Kiki Frances simultaneously in the car’s rear-view mirror and in her bedroom, right before she starts to talk about the dream she had last night. When the chorus hits, we see a change in the lightning with hues of blue and red making an appearance, as well as glares of light which add to that dreamy feeling. Post-chorus, it is now daylight so the lighting is much brighter and we can see Kiki is back at the Flying Saucer - now sitting down inside the restaurant. As the chorus repeats itself, the video goes back to that dreamy dark lighting, which is what we mostly see for the rest of the video. In the end, we get a happy ending with Kiki and her date holding hands in the car. 

You can listen to their most recent releases via the audio streaming service of your choice.
