Milk & Bone’s debut album, Little Mourning (Bonsound), got the attention of The Guardian, NYLON, V Magazine, The Globe and Mail, and Interview Magazine, as well as long-listed for the 2015 Polaris Music Prize. The single “Pressure” hit 5 million streams on Spotify.
Their sophomore effort, Deception Bay was released on February 2, 2018. Just like their 2015 debut, love and relationships — from every angle — are the cornerstones of these 14 new songs. Emotions ran very high on their Polaris Long-Listed debut album, and on Deception Bay, Lafond-Beaulne and Poliquin present themselves in a new light. From innocent crushes (“Daydream,” “KIDS”) to impossible love (“Faded,” “BBBLUE”), they now exude confidence and inner strength.
Deception Bay was recorded partly at Studios Apollo and La Majeure and mixed by Gabriel Gagnon and Howie Beck (Feist, Charlotte Day Wilson). This new collection of electro-pop songs features numerous collaborations with musicians and producers, including Grammy award-winning pianist Chilly Gonzales, CRi, and Jonathan Dauphinais. By pushing Milk & Bone to explore new avenues, each of them helped enrich the group’s soundscape, while maintaining an overall unity throughout the album.
“Milk & Bone’s set was totally captivating and one of the undeniable consensus favorites of the weekend.” – Vice
