( exclaim) "Strange maybe, but unified: their individually crafted ideas pointed in the same direction. That now-complete album, Deception Bay, finds Milk & Bone doubling down on the intimate catharsis they seem uniquely potent in conveying. If Little Mourning's dreamy refractions of longing and loss lingered on the interplay of synth, harmony and sentiment, Deception Bay expands both depth and range, spanning the smallest new-crush moments to a post-relationship reckoning on the title track.

"It's still very intimate, but I think we opened the scope a little more," Poliquin says of the album. "Into a reflection onto what's intimate."

Lived experience radiates through Deception Bay. Poliquin notes that squaring up deeply personal moments in song is a way processing them off the page, too.

"It's a bit of a therapy: you don't know how to deal with a certain situation, and that's how you express it, and then it makes it a lot easier to understand," she says. "Sometimes you don't really know you're facing a wall, and then you write the song and realize what's going on.

"Other times, it's more a reflection of what happened," Poliquin continues. "Looking back at a certain moment or certain issue or problem, and reflecting on what happened, and why you think it went that way, and what could've been different."

To hone their ideas, the duo went into studio with producer Gabriel Gagnon — who helped craft Little Mourning — and called on outside collaborators like house producer CRi, Max-Antoine Gendron, Jonathan Dauphinais and Grammy nominee Chilly Gonzales. All offered nuanced add-ons to the duo's sound, but Milk & Bone still draw most of their strength from the growing confidence of their initial, serendipitous connection: a desire to collaborate that formed when Poliquin and Lafond-Beaulne both showed up to sing on a mutual friend's album."
