A 12’’ vinyl for DIVE, Milk & Bone’s collaborative EP with Belgian producer Alex Lustig, will be available on August 29th, in exclusivity for this year’s Record Store Day. Originally scheduled in April, the annual event was split into three days (August 29th, September 26th and October 24th) due to the pandemic. This very limited edition can be purchased at indie record stores as of Saturday.
Released digitally in the spring of 2019 via Bonsound, DIVE won the 2019 GAMIQ for Pop EP of the Year. On the retrowave EP, Milk & Bone explore new soundscapes that channel 80’s nostalgia, using sharp synths, pumping bass and song lyrics that are both wistful and empowering.
DIVE features the flagship song Peaches, a teenage nostalgia anthem that reminds us of the innocence of young love and feeling misunderstood, and a time when we couldn’t wait to grow up. Milk & Bone also renewed their collaboration with director Soleil Denault for the video that accompanies the song, delivering visuals that perfectly showcase the song’s spirit. The women dance, party and run around Montreal as they sing Don't look back, I want to live it all.
For a second time in their career, the Montrealers scored a film directed by Podz, Mafia Inc., and they worked on the soundtrack for two original Cirque du Soleil shows, Cosmos and Exentricks, which were performed on the MSC Grandiosa cruise ship. The duo’s sophomore album Deception Bay won a Juno for Electronic Album, as well as Anglophone Show of the Year at the 2019 ADISQ Gala.
