Blanche et Noir are a alternative-grunge duo from Montreal consisting of Amanda Morley on drums and Jean Leclerc on guitar and vocals. I caught their powerful set at Supermarket on the first night of Canadian Music Week 2016. This set marked their first performance outside of Quebec.

​Blanche et Noir's music features big, distorted power chords along with powerful and propulsive drum beats. I heard lots of 90s grunge in their sound. I liked the great combination of heavy guitar riffing with pounding drums and strong emotive vocals. Their music also takes the time to groove.

This guitar-drums duo format is a popular one. It's great to see a duo that's bringing 90s influences to this format in such an energetic and appealing way. I loved the duo's set and look forward to hearing more from them in future.
