BBBLUE (Summertime Sadness Edit)
Milk & Bone’s set was totally captivating and one of the other undeniable consensus favorites of the weekend.
Noisey / Vice
une musique à la fois poignante et onirique qui s’ouvre sur un abîme de splendeur contemplative.
every piece of this collection is as solid as the next […] strong debut with nary a fault in sight. 9/10

Milk & Bone’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.milknbone.com
A year after the release of JUNO award-winning Deception Bay, Milk & Bone returns with the song Ride or Die, off their upcoming retrowave EP (due out in 2019). The EP’s first single was co-produced with Alex Lustig and is the first official collaboration between the Montreal duo and the Belgian producer. Backed by Lustig, Milk & Bone explores new soundscapes. They channel 80’s nostalgia using sharp synths and pumping bass, and sing lyrics that are both heartbreaking and empowering.
It's the first time Milk & Bone shares new material since they dropped their second album Deception Bay, released February 2018 via Bonsound. That collection of 14 electro-pop songs landed on the Polaris prize long list and earned the duo their second nomination at the ADISQ gala. Following in the footsteps of Little Mourning (2015), Deception Bay explores all facets of love and relationships. While emotions ran high on their debut album, here they present themselves in a new light.
Last summer, the duo released a rework of their song BBBLUE, called Summertime Sadness Edit with a stunning visual by Soleil Denault. 'Cause I’m baby blue / I wish I was your baby too, Camille Poliquin and Laurence Lafond-Beaulne sing on the chorus of this ode to a hopeless love.
Produced with Gabriel Gagnon, and mixed by Gagnon and Howie Beck (Feist, Charlotte Day Wilson, River Tiber). This new collection of electro-pop songs features numerous collaborations with musicians and producers, including Grammy award-winning pianist Chilly Gonzales, CRi, Max-Antoine Gendron and Jonathan Dauphinais. By pushing Milk & Bone and Gagnon to explore new avenues, each of them helped enrich the group’s soundscape, while maintaining an overall coherence throughout the album.
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 4 million streams on Spotify. Their sophomore effort, Deception Bay was released on February 2nd, 2018.
