New: TRUST - "Sulk"


We're really into Trust, the chilly electro project of Austra drummer Maya Postepski and Robert Alfons (see: our obsession with their early single "Bulbform"), so we're psyched about the release of the lead single from their upcoming debut record. "Sulk" is, like the band's best material, dark and hypnotically rhythmic, like how asphalt glows under streetlights after it rains, what with its percolating, winding new-wave synth lines and metronomic drum machine.

Alfons' voice is mixed like it's an instrument in its own right, beneath those layers of complex, interwoven percussion and synth programming: his post-punk-y vocals seem behind a thick, opaque screen. We can't wait for their upcoming, aptly titled TRST, coming via Arts & Crafts on February 28.
