Darkwave electro-pop meister Trust, has recently released two tracks off his imminent second LP Joyland; ‘Rescue Mister’ a few days ago, and now, ‘Capitol’.
Toronto-based Robert Alfons aka Trust, received glowing praise for the 2012 Juno-nominated debut album ‘TRST’, and the follow up album ‘Joyland’ will be released by Arts & Crafts on March 4, 2014. It is available to pre-order here.
‘Capitol’ reveals a beating heart pulsing beneath the beats, with a space-laser percussion intro leading into layered synths and the distinctive wide-ranging vocals from Alfons. ‘Rescue Mister’ is a jerky, glitchy stomper however, with slicing high pitched synths cutting into the verse, and child-like vocal accompaniments in the chorus.
As well as the above, have a listen to a thudding dance remix of “Rescue, Mister,” by Tarantula X here.
Trust will be embarking on a massive tour, the London leg of which us indietronica lot will be attending and are rather excited about.
