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.
The Toronto duo, Trust, have announced their signing to Arts & Crafts. The band is Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski and they boast their self-described sound as “speed, space and tears.” The band posted its new single, “Bulbform”, available now for free download at ttrustt.com. An official video for “Bulbform” as well as announcements surrounding physical releases should be expected in the coming weeks. They also plan to release their debut full-length in 2012.
