Men I Trust – Lauren

We’ve been fans of Men I Trust for some time now, so imagine our excitement when a new video popped up in our inbox!

Founded in 2014, Men I Trust are an electronic pop four-piece from Québec, comprised of Dragos Chiriac (keys and mastering), Jessy Caron (guitar, bass & keys), Odile Marmet-Rochefort (vocals), and Emmanuelle Proulx (vocals).

Men I Trust have the cool vibes of the late 90’s, blended with beautiful piano melodies, low fuzzy bass and powerful, yet fragile vocals from the two girls.

The video for ‘Lauren’ was shot by the band at the Hautes-Gorges National Park near their home in Québec.
