Last night was the first time that TRUST ever visited Philadelphia. The Toronto-based electronic outfit brought us all a sexy-good time at the North Star Bar, headlining a bill comprised of Void Vision, the Downtown Club and DJ Passable Plastic, who all happen to hail from Philly. The show marked the beginning of their current string of North American shows, where they had just wrapped up a large portion of their Fall 2012 tour over in Europe. The trio on stage played a generous portion of their twisted synth-pop debut TRST from Arts & Crafts, even slipping in a couple brand new tracks that have yet to have a home. Robert Alfons led the way in his dark, brooding tone for the duration of the show, often times sounding right on point with what you hear in their recorded material. Perhaps once this current tour of theirs is over, we’ll start hearing more about these new songs they played last night. Continue reading “TRUST Live in Philadelphia (10/24/12)”
If you’re like us, then you can’t seem to get enough of TRUST. The Canadian duo has only released one 7″ to their name thus far and then there’s the lone track “Not a Waste of Sky” within the Sacred Bones Todo Muere compilation. While those three songs really aren’t enough to keep anybody satisfied, neither is this fourth track “Gloryhole” I’m going to send your way, but we hope it partially helps subside your Trust fever.
Like the other three tracks, there’s a dark and dire trance wave that extends itself through this inexplicably sexy dance anthem. However, it’s a rewarding song because even though they stick to their “grave wave” aesthetic, it doesn’t sound remotely close to the other three songs that you can potentially unearth from Trust. In other words, all of these tracks vary greatly while managing to stay within the darkly brooding and troubling realm that is Trust. Lead singer Robert Alfons sounds cold and haunted in “Gloryhole”, and although this one features minimal vocals (see “Not a Waste of Sky” for the opposite), he still manages to send a shivering chill up your spine whether you like it or not. At this point we can’t exactly say what’s to come next, but we can at least keep our eyes on Sacred Bones who looks to be releasing their debut long player sometime in 2011.
