Formed in 2009, the Toronto-based duo Trust are Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski (also a member in Austra). They release their forthcoming debut full length, ‘TRST’ via Arts & Crafts on February 28, 2012 on vinyl / CD and by digital download. To provide some reference to explain the sound on this album – it is like a fusion of The Knife, Austra and Salem. It is dark, left of centre dance music with a hint of gothic swagger. ‘TRST’ is a very solid debut across all 11 tracks and definitely worth picking up as the soundtrack to kick off or as the come down for any party.

“Tales of lust, wax, and erotomania carry along on a dense black vapor of speed, space and tears.”
Standout tracks: The slow, brooding and beautiful Shoom and the synth-heavy, electro drum beat laden This Ready Flesh.
