Formed by Laurence Lafond-Beaulne and Camille Poliquin (both accomplished studio and touring musicians), Milk & Bone released their debut album, Little Mourning, on March 17th, 2015 in Canada via Bonsound. By combining their voices and talents, the two friends create electro-pop melodies that are both dreamy and harrowing. Having drawn the attention of various international publications (The Guardian, NYLON, V Magazine, Interview Magazine), the album was long-listed for the 2015 Polaris Music Prize and the band was nominated at the 2016 JUNO Awards for Breakthrough Group of the Year. 


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. 

Milk & Bone’s tightly-knit bond, palpable in their creative process and throughout the album, is a key part of their live shows. On top of selling out some of the greatest venues in Montreal (like the Corona Theatre and the Théâtre Maisonneuve) and in the province of Quebec, the winners of the 2015 SOCAN Breakthrough Award also successfully toured across Europe and the United States. 

Before beginning work on their second album - due out in 2018 - Milk & Bone took on the challenge of writing a film score for Podz’ movie King Dave. Nominated at the Canadian Screen Awards for Achievement in Music - Original Song, the film’s theme song, Natalie, has over 3.4 million streams on Spotify.
