It’s hard to say whether Toronto’s Trust are the same group that released the debut album TRST in 2012. They’ve gone from being a duo to becoming Robert Alfons’s solo project. And on the two tracks that we’ve heard from the forthcoming Joyland, that album’s dark, gothy pop has become something harder and clubbier and more direct. But maybe that’s a good thing. The new song “Capitol” follows “Rescue, Mister,” and like that one, it’s something like what happened if someone remembered that the word “house” was supposed to be part of the term “witch house.” Listen to “Capitol” below.
