Just a few weeks after the release of their third album, Chrysalism, electro-pop duo Milk & Bone returns with a music video for Object of Fun, a song that explores how the male gaze ignores the uniqueness and multitudes of womanhood.
In the music video, which uses video game aesthetics to denounce the objectification of women, Laurence Lafond-Beaulne and Camille Poliquin find themselves captive in a cubic house filled with strange objects, at the mercy of a player who controls them. When they are not under his watch, they are able to fully express their humanity, ultimately rebelling against the force that tries to contain them.
Released on October 28th, Chrysalism has been described by CBC Music as "a collection of raw insecurities, mundane moments, heart-wrenching conflicts and beautiful bonds". Built on vocal harmonies, synth-led hooks and catchy guitar riffs, this third album allowed the duo to explore topics such as love, longing and heartbreak from a more mature perspective. Composed and recorded with the help of Los Angeles-based producer Micah Jasper (ELIO, Rebecca Black, Slayyyter), who shares the duo’s pop sensibilities and references, Chrysalism is a poignant reflection of what it feels like to grow older and come into your own.
