WATCH | RYAN Playground Revisits A Moment That Flipped Her World Upside Down in "Prolongation"
Genevieve Ryan Martel (aka RYAN Playground) was raised by two classical musicians in Montreal. At age 5, she received her first drum kit and by 11, she was creating her own compositions with her guitar and drums. By the time she was a teenager, Genevieve was experimenting with FL studio and electronic music.
We've had the honour to discover RYAN Playground a few years ago, and collaborating on a dope edition of our Podcast series that garnered a lot of attention. Since then, we've had the chance to see her grow into her own and evolve through different sounds and find herself with her latest releases.
RYAN Playground just dropped the video for new single, "Prolongation", which follows her as she journeys back to childhood. Watch above.
Speaking on the video, director Didier Charette explains:
"After several meetings with me, RYAN opened up and told me her life story. There was a moment in her life that changed everything. For her, an actual encounter flipped her world upside down and made her realize that she had grown up to not be her true self and she wanted to go back to her childhood to find herself. For years she had tried to fit in, but that moment made her realize that she wasn't happy. That's what we went for."
