TRUST is the musical project of Toronto artist Robert Alfons.

After years of extensive touring, and garnering glowing praise from top international critics at Pitchfork, VICE, and The Guardian UK for the 2012 Juno-nominated debut album “TRST”, the follow up album “Joyland” will be released by Arts & Crafts on March 4, 2014.

“Joyland” is an eruption of guts, eels, and joy.

Praise For Trust:

“On “Capitol“, Robert Alfons’ dark, ominously sulking synthpop explodes into a soaring chorus-of-the-year contender that’s cathartic and life-affirming and very hard not to spontaneously dance to every time” –Gorilla Vs. Bear

“”Rescue, Mister” features a slightly clarified sound compared to TRST’s grinding grit, with some impressive vocal acrobatics from Alfons.” – Pitchfork

““Rescue, Mister” is harder and clubbier and more concrete than anything on TRST, but it keeps some fundamental darkness intact.” -Stereogum

“‘Rescue, Mister’ proves that Alfons’s lost none of his synth craftmanship, sending disco-pop through a crazed, futuregasm vortex.” – This is Fake DIY

“Moody, skulking pop that reminisces downcast ’80s dance at its best.” – FADER

“Trust, is another one of those breaking Canadian acts that seems to have appeared fully-formed with a heap of brilliant, deviant, electronically infused tracks” — NOISEY

“’Rescue, Mister’ like the whole album, puts a gothy spin on house pop, courtesy Alfons’ rather sinister vocal style.”–Brooklyn Vegan

““While Trust is seemingly delivering the same kind of emotional experience, it’s a formula that’s been retooled with extra lethal results.” –Consequence Of Sound

“the sort of gloomy synthpop that’ll make you want to smoke cigarettes, rim your eyes with kohl and dance jerkily in the dark basement of a Berlin warehouse.” –NME [UK]

“mix of Depeche Mode-esque synth riffs mixed with Alfons’s murky baritone.” –The Guardian [UK]
