Editorial Reviews

Trust is Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski (Austra). Formed in 2009, the Toronto-based duo released its first singles, "Candy Walls" and "Bulbform" in 2011 before signing with Arts & Crafts for the 2012 release of their forthcoming debut full length, TRST.

Following the release of debut 7-inch "Candy Walls" earlier this year on U.S. imprint Sacred Bones, Trust quickly garnered acclaim for its stirring and moody sounds, with Stereogum and The Fader quickly picking up the track and hailing the band as one to watch during SXSW 2011. In September 2011, Trust followed up "Candy Walls" with another 7" from Sacred Bones that featured "Bulbform" and "F.T.F." as a B-side. Versions of both tracks along with a version of "Candy Walls" will be include in the upcoming Arts & Crafts release.

In the last year they've performed with DFA1979, Crystal Castles, Balam Acab, Glass Candy, and Hercules and Love Affair.

Tales of lust, wax, and erotomania carry along on a dense black vapor of speed, space and tears. Trust is a pop hit factory buried deep in the mud. More info to come on 2012 tour dates and SXSW shows.

"Cast their own shadow of darkness with gothic synths and baritone vocals." - Brooklyn Vegan "Something beautifully seedy." - The Fader

"They keep that dark, `dirty' energy in place and add a bunch of hooks, an ability/knack that separates them from a lot of folks associated with the word `witch.'" - Stereogum

"Dear Trust: You give me the chills; you know, the good kind. The dark, murky synth, low bass and ice man voice make my hairs stand on end, anxious for the next beat." - Yours Truly

It's strange you know? I went to go pick up my copy of Asphyx:Deathhammer, and in the shop (MagnoliaThunderpussy), this CD was being played. Now coming from a guy who listens to mainly death and black metal, this will sound very weird. I like this, this is very cool, and interesting. It is haunting, dark, loud, and all tripped out and just pretty much draws you in from start to finish. Once it is over it kind of makes you sad, and you just have to put it back on, only on repeat the next time. I sincerely recommend this to anyone who is into any genre. Its really that good. Unfortunately I cant exactly draw any comparisons to anything, its that unique. You should check it out, give it a spin and give it a chance, I think it will shock you. Truly amazing stuff.

back when i was in high school there was a club near my house called the ivy tower. they played stuff like sisters of mercy, front 242, new order, nitzer ebb, bauhaus, siouxsie, depeche, etc. all the freakie deakies came out en masse (ok, that's a slight exaggeration) and we danced until, well, midnight (remember, this was high school!) and it was a great time.

trust's 'trst' would have fit right in that mix. right from the get go, 'shroom' gets the magical techno show off to a rip-roaring good time. robert alfon's vocals drift from sounding like a nasally peter murphy at the height of 'bela lugosi's dead' to a less-theatrical male counterpart to glass candy's ida no. he's a tough one to peg down, but i say that as a compliment. you're never quite sure which alfon you're going to get.

the synths on a majority of the tracks are nothing short of...locomotive? pulsating? thunderous? menacing? pick your superlative. but which ever one you do pick, rest assured they'll bat you over the head until you scream for mercy. this is a heavy, heavy, heavy synth record and it's completely awesome (so much so, i almost went and dyed my hair black. again).

having said all of that, the great thing about 'trst' is that despite all it's menacing overtones, the songs themselves are still very sharp, full of tight, catchy melodies, and hook-filled choruses. it's not especially easy to pull off a full-fledged, heavy synth album without enduring a joke or two; but trust expertly pulls it off with enough flair and cajones to make even the gothiest of goths crack a smile. true story.

so, maybe i will go dye my hair black and party like it's 1989. it's not such a bad place to go.

I am a musician and a lover of music in general, but I've never been very good at putting my thoughts into words when it comes to describing what I like. However, I did want to take the time to write this review and say that this album is amazing. I am a fan of many genres, and I find that the songs here appeal to almost everything I like about popular music across the board. It's one of those rare albums that doesn't have a single bad track, though certain titles like "Shoom", "Dressed for Space", and "FTF" are certainly standouts. I've always cared more about voice than lyrics, and the lead singer's voice is both unique and captivating, even if you can't understand half of what he is saying. Honestly, I think that's part of the appeal here. The songwriting, vocals, and the dark electronic sounds all add up to a mysterious and engrossing listening experience that stands well above its contemporaries. It's as good for dancing as it is for listening alone with headphones, and only gets better with multiple listens. Highly recommended for fans of rock, electronic, techno, or pretty much any type of popular music. Very few bands do what they do as well as Trust has done with this debut album.

I stumbled upon this album by accident, and what a surprise! I'm a huge fan of late 70's/early 80's New Wave and Alternative, and have heard there has been a bit of an underground revival going on for some time, though I've not really been exposed to it. Well, here is a prime example.

Trust is an amazing band that sounds like classic horror film actor Vincent Price meets early/mid 80's electro Goth. All the elements are there; classic, dark vocal hooks along with wonderful analog synths and drum machine sounds. I felt transported back in time. For the young audiences they may assume this is a current sound, but you're really being treated to how brilliant music was 30 years ago, before Grunge ruined "Alternative" music and Marilyn Manson distorted and exploited the original Goth ethic. The closest comparison in sound would be Sisters of Mercy.

The album starts off very strong with the dark and brooding "Shoom", followed by the darkly catchy "Dressed for Space". Then we are treated to a remix of an earlier single called "Bulbform" with a wonderful repetitive hook. After a few more great tracks, the album does lose steam with a few lesser tracks all in a row, including "This Ready Flesh", "F.T.F" and "Heaven", but picks up again and closes with a real retro dance floor stunner, "Sulk". For those of you on iTunes, you can get another worthwhile bonus track called "The Dazzle".

It turns out Trust contains a member of another newly discovered Canadian band that I've recently fallen in love with called Austra. Though that band is classic, artistic synthpop with all those great classic electronic sounds, it's much more beautifully haunting than the dark Gothic style of Trust. Both bands are very exciting and I hope they continue to produce music of this quality.
