Following the summer single Daydream, Milk & Bone now return with Deception Bay, the title track of their sophomore effort due out February 2nd, 2018 via Bonsound. Tackling the downsides of love, humiliation and revenge, Deception Bay is a moody, intoxicating song for broken souls. You never said why you went away / We’ll meet again in Deception Bay / You promised you would be here to stay / We’ll meet again in Deception Bay, sing Milk & Bone in a chorus that is sure to become a highlight on tour. Deception Bay is that place where you send all your failed relationships, explains the duo. It’s about that love you convinced yourself would work.
Milk & Bone also announce a North American tour in support of their new album. Kicking off in Toronto on March 1st, the tour includes dates in Ottawa, Quebec City, and stops across the US. The duo will present their new show in Montreal for the first time on April 5th at Théâtre Corona, before heading out to Europe for a few dates. Tour dates are listed below and on bonsound.com (more will be announced soon).
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 is palpable in their creative process and throughout the album, and is a key part of their live shows.
Milk & Bone's debut album, Little Mourning, 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 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.
