The Montreal act get the most out of their minimal set-up.

The eccentric Montreal artist Emilie and Ogden released their latest album 10 000 in October, and have just released a special live performance of the track "White Lies" that showcases the act's phenomenal versatility on mere harp, bass, and drums.

"White Lies probably sounds the opposite of what everyone would expect from a girl with a harp, which I'm sort of proud of," says Emilie. "It's a grittier, harsher song about anger over being betrayed, where I get to pull as many strings as I can as hard as I can as it builds up at the end."
