Milk & Bone traveled to Los Angeles this past summer to shoot the video for Daydream. This is the first single off their upcoming sophomore effort, set to be released in February 2018 via Bonsound. Directed and designed by Jérémie Saindon and Soleil Denault, the video - premiering today on W Magazine - is a beautiful expression of the song’s romantic and lustful aura. We needed to write a lusty song that would make you wanna close your eyes and feel the sun setting on your cheeks, explains the duo. We wrote Daydream in a moment of creative closeness. The single was produced by Gabriel Gagnon, the band’s early collaborator, and mixed by Gagnon and Howie Beck (Feist, Ron Sexsmith, Charlotte Day Wilson, etc.).
Montreal’s Milk & Bone (Laurence Lafond-Beaulne and Camille Poliquin) create melodies that are both dreamy and harrowing. Made up of electronic textures and layered synths, Lafond-Beaulne and Poliquin’s sonic universe distinguishes itself from the electro-pop genre thanks to their perfectly-paired vocal colours. Their mesmerizing harmonies explore the darker aspects of love, friendship and lust. Their tightly-knit bond, palpable in their creative process and throughout the album, is a key part of their live shows.
Milk & Bone's debut album, Little Mourning (Bonsound), got the attention of The Guardian, NYLON, V Magazine, The Globe and Mail and Interview Magazine, and was long-listed for the 2015 Polaris Music Prize. The single Pressure hit 5 million streams on Spotify. The band won the 2015 Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada "Breakthrough Award" and was nominated at the 2016 JUNO Awards for Breakthrough Group of the Year. They were also nominated at the Canadian Screen Awards for Achievement in Music - Original Song for Podz' movie King Dave, and the film’s popular theme song, Natalie, has over 3.8 million streams on Spotify. Released in August, Daydream is the lead single from their sophomore effort which is due in winter 2018.
