Wow. Could this be the album of the year? As far as I’m concerned, the competition could end right here, right now.
Do you like your electronics with a hint of drama? A bit of atmosphere with beats to match? Do you want something with a wisp of goth but without the guilt? Then this one is for you.
The Canadian duo Trust totally nails it on their new record “Trst”, with an icy, dare I say, dark take on electronic music that pulls from the very best of retro EBM and synth pop without sounding derivative or desperate. They take enough chances with sounds, textures, and attitude to keep it completely up to date. All of this plus hooks to die for.
