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. “Rescue, Mister,” the first single off the forthcoming album suggests that the album will be a subtle change of sonic direction, as the sound is a bit cleaner and poppier – although it pulsates and undulates with a forcefulness that you can imagine can rock a large room.
He’ll be at Glasslands on the 28th, so check him out.
