With A Little Better Every Time, Milk & Bone introduces us to a new facet of Chrysalism, a third effort that marks a departure into an unmistakably pop-forward territory. The album is set to be released on October 28th, 2022 via Bonsound.
Unfolding in full intensity as a poignant ballad, A Little Better Every Time is a reminder to love yourself in order to move forward. This song follows the guitar pop sing-along Movies, the summertime bop Borders and the slow-burn single Bigger Love.
A Little Better Every Time is available on all music platforms.
Chrysalism is now available for physical and digital pre-order.
Milk & Bone’s new track is complemented by a powerful, highly symbolic video - think angel wings and a snake that molts and coils around its prey - directed by Lian Benoit and Derek Branscombe. Steeped in both fury and tenderness, the footage resonates with the intensity of the drums and guitars. The video features Camille Poliquin and Laurence Lafond-Beaulne, the two halves of Milk & Bone, finding the strength to remain whole, as their image is slowly distorted.
In addition to this release, Milk & Bone announces a series of Canadian dates. In February 2023 the duo will hit Toronto, Kingston and Ottawa before performing in their hometown on February 16th. Returning to their roots, the duo will perform an intimate show at the PHI Centre – where they launched their debut album Little Mourning in 2015 – to reconnect with their fans. A tour will follow sometime in 2023. Head over to milknbone.com or see the list below for all the details.
Earlier this summer, the Montreal-based electro-pop duo reimagined their song Bigger Love, in addition to covering Pomme's On brûlera, as part of the Spotify Singles series, available exclusively via the streaming platform. The band also made a cameo in the Netflix-produced movie Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between, performing two songs from their repertoire.
Milk & Bone’s third album is built on enthralling vocal harmonies, synth-led music and melodic guitar riffs. On Chrysalism, the pair explores topics such as love, longing and heartbreak from a more mature perspective, no longer choosing to see themselves as victims of circumstances but rather as actors in the storyline of their love lives. Composed and recorded with the help of Micah Jasper (ELIO, Rebecca Black, Slayyyter), a Los Angeles-based producer 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.
About Milk & Bone
Behind the entrancing voices and heartbreakingly honest lyrics of the electro-pop duo Milk & Bone hides the vibrant inner world of close friends and musicians Laurence Lafond-Beaulne (Soft Fabric) and Camille Poliquin (KROY). With the release of Little Mourning (2015), Deception Bay (2018) and DIVE (2019), the pair accumulated over 75 million streams online and has toured Canada, Europe and the United States. In addition to their releases as Milk & Bone, the duo has scored two Cirque du Soleil shows and several feature films, including Podz's King Dave, which earned them a Canadian Screen Awards nomination in 2017. Over the years, Milk & Bone took home a Juno Award for Electronic Album of the Year (2019), were listed twice on the Polaris Prize Long List (2015 and 2018), and were nominated for Breakthrough Group of the Year at the 2016 Juno Awards. After a necessary break induced by the pandemic, the duo is set to return this fall with their new album Chrysalism.
