2022 Prism Prize Eligible Video: Dan Mangan - Lay Low 

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 one of Canada's most-respected singer/songwriters.

Dan Mangan - Lay Low 

Dan Mangan is an acclaimed indie-rock/folk musician from British Columbia. He has won two Juno Awards, been long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize and has won three Western Canadian Music Awards. His last album, Thief, was released in 2020 and his latest single Fire Escape came out in July 2022. You can see Mangan perform live as he is currently on tour. A new album, Being Somewhere, is set for release on Oct. 28

The music video for Law Low is centred around a young child. Full of calming shots of trees and leaves, and the house where the child lives - this video is sweet and easy to watch. The video feels like we are exploring the life of this child through her point of view, from playing around, getting upset to eating snacks and being with her parents. Overall, it is an adorably domestic music video that lets us see a young child just being herself at home. 

Listen to Mangan’s current single Fire Escape on the audio streaming service of your choice.
