Trust – Rescue Mister & Capitol


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.

Sounds like; Grimes, Crystal Castles, Salem, Kap Bambino

Kate Boy – In Your Eyes

Kate Boy

Kate Boy

Kate Boy is Australian-born Kate Akhurst, Swedish Hampus Nordgren Hemlin, Markus Dextegen, and Oskar Sikow Engström, but they’d like to be seen more as ‘this androgynous person, almost like a character’.

Synthy slow burner (but still luxurious in sound), ‘In Your Eyes’ is taken from Kate Boy’s ‘Northern Lights’ EP, which was out on 22 January 2013 via IAMSOUND (Salem, Banks, Charli XCX).
