Canadian darkwave act, TRUST, strikes the right balance between electro, synthwave, & vintage goth.

It's clear upon listening to TRUST that Toronto artist, Robert Alfons, has an incredible command over his instruments--and of the way he crafts his sounds. TRUST's darkwave may be saturated with shimmering synths, but its also anchored by Alfons' deep, bellowing voice. And while it does sound twisted and brooding, there's a lightness to it--as if it wasn't willing to forsake its playfulness and spunk. Joining TRUST are three other bands with similar sonic inclinations, so prepare for a night of nouveau-noir noise...and lots of black.

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