Milk & Bone: (Montreal electro-pop, Bonsound recs)
Milk & Bone are a Canadian electropop duo, consisting of Laurence Lafond-Beaulne and Camille Poliquin. Their debut album Little Mourning, released in 2015 via Bonsound, was a longlisted nominee for the 2015 Polaris Music Prize.
The duo first met as music students at Cégep de Saint-Laurent, and later performed with David Giguère’s touring band. They decided to begin writing and performing as a duo after being brought in as guest vocalists on Misteur Valaire’s 2013 album Bellevue.
Although both of the band members are francophones, they write and record in English. With the majority of their immediate friends and colleagues also being francophone, they used SoundCloud to connect with potential contributors to the album, including Toronto-based rapper Terrell Morris on the track “Tomodachi”.
In 2015, Milk & Bone was the recipient of the SOCAN Breakout Award at the Francophone SOCAN Awards in Montreal.
