The dark Toronto electro-pop act Trust are a couple of weeks away from releasing Joyland, their second album but their first with producer Robert Alfons as the sole member. Early tracks “Rescue, Mister” and “Capitol” gave some idea what to expect: Big-room club music rendered as a sweaty fever-dream. But “Are We Arc?,” the third song Alfons has shared, is probably the best. It’s a twinkling brood, a pretty synthpop tune with a very heavy undercurrent. Listen below.
