Armistice was a Canadian indie pop band, consisting of Montreal singer-songwriter Béatrice Martin, better known by her stage name Coeur de pirate, and Jay Malinowski of Bedouin Soundclash.[1]


Martin and Malinowski met at the Vancouver Olympics. They began a relationship and started playing music and writing songs together. The duo released a five-song EP, Armistice, on February 15, 2011 on Dare to Care Records.[2][3] The EP's lead single, "Mission Bells", was released to radio in early January.

In addition to Martin and Malinowski, several members of the American punk rock band The Bronx participated in the recording, playing primarily in the mariachi style of their 2009 album Mariachi El Bronx.[1][4] The album's tracks blended this with Malinowski's alt-rock, Martin's French indie-pop, and a little reggae.[5]

After 2011 Armistice was no longer active due to Béatrice Martin and Jay Malinowski's end of relationship.[6] Martin continues to perform songs which the pair wrote for the album.[7]
