Trust – ‘Trst’

The sort of gloomy synthpop that’ll make you want to smoke cigarettes and dance jerkily in a dark basement

Trust – ‘Trst’

7 / 10 Slouching out of Toronto’s shadows comes Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski (also of Austra), solemnly bearing the sort of gloomy synthpop that’ll make you want to smoke cigarettes, rim your eyes with kohl and dance jerkily in the dark basement of a Berlin warehouse. While ‘Bulbform’ might sound a little like late-night Crystal Castles, the pulsing sensuality of tracks like ‘The Last Dregs’ and the shimmering ‘Chrissy E’ ensure that they carve out a space of their own. Cool kids Trust never want to be seen to be trying too hard, but finale ‘Sulk’ is where it all comes together, like Chromatics with an evil glint in their eye. Good stuff if you’re feeling sinister.
