The Toronto, ON-based, Robert Alfons writes, records and performs under the moniker of Trust. His 2012 debut effort, TRST was released both critical praise and commercial success — critics at Vice, Pitchfork and The Guardian reviewed it favorably and the album was nominated for a Juno-award in his native Canada. 

Alfons’s sophomore effort Joyland will see a March 4th release through Arts & Crafts Records. And the second single, “Capitol” reflects a change of sonic direction for Alfons, as the overall sound is cleaner and more pop-orientated, as it has a studio sheen – although it pulsates and undulates with a forcefulness that can rock a large room.
