Listen: TR/ST

“…the verses where Alfons mutters his incantations of discordant, metallic noises create a mood venomous enough to linger over the hook’s explosive synthy turn-up.” – FADER

TR/ST, is another one of those breaking Canadian acts that seems to have appeared fully-formed with a heap of brilliant, deviant, electronically infused tracks” – NOISEY

Check out the new song from Toronto based musician TR/ST. The track is entitled “Bicep” and will be part of a release due out early 2018. When talking about the track TR/ST (Robert Alfons) says, “This song and much of the album was written in isolation in a farmhouse in rural Canada. It’s about the journey of a figure — essentially a narcissist — fighting with ideas of impurity and worthlessness. It’s about the struggle between accepting and resisting shame, as well as an expression of sexual fantasies.”

After years of extensive touring, and garnering glowing praise from top international critics at Pitchfork, VICE, and The Guardian UK for the 2012 Juno-nominated debut album TRST, the follow-up album Joyland is out now on Arts & Crafts. Joyland is an eruption of guts, eels, and joy.
