TRUST – “Bulbform” Video

Trust

Arts & Crafts took a strong step toward post-BSS-era redefinition by signing TRUST, the murk-wave synth-pop Toronto duo of Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski. You may recognize Maya’s eyeglass frames from Austra shows, where she serves on drums; in fact, if you’ve seen Austra at a small club show over the past year, you probably caught TRUST opening. Last year, Brandon Stosuy named them one of his Dark Bands To Watch, the same year I saw them at SXSW and again at Mercury Lounge. They were arresting, both times: Postepski’s stoic while driving the music’s live/programmed rhythmic elements, while the wiry and slight Alfons cuts an Ian Curtis doing a twitched-out running man figure, sounding perfect for the part with improbably dulcet, appropriately clenched post-punk vocals. Unfortunately you don’t see any of that, per se, in this video for “Bulbform,” but it is a solid introduction to the band, and a track from their forthcoming full-length. Get into it:

Here’s the previously posted “Candy Walls,” which will appear on the proper LP out 2/28 via Arts & Crafts:
