With their second record, "Joyland" waiting in the wings, Trust are ready to unleash a darkly glittering ace up their sleeve. By turns strange and sad, beautiful and dark, "Joyland" takes the lush, pulsing synths of their acclaimed debut "TRST" and twists it into something else entirely, something much more shaded and emotive. Just listen to their newly unveiled track "Are We Arc?" for proof of this, offering something as close to a broken hearted ballad as frontman Robert Alfons is likely to get.
Following the release of "Joyland" on April 7th through Arts & Crafts, Alfons will also be taking the newly retooled Trust live show to the UK and Europe in May, taking in their biggest headline shows to date, including a gig at XOYO in London. Make sure you don't miss out on this rare opportunity to catch Trust in inimitable live action.
