This is Istanbul's second date with Trust in a year. The brainchild of Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski (also of the band Austra), Trust released its first goth- and house-inspired synthpop/darkwave album ‘TRST’ in 2012. Larry Fitzmaurice of Pitchfork wrote that Alfons' voice "has a slithering, grimy quality to it that increases the raunch-factor on particularly dirty-sounding tracks like 'Shoom' and 'Bulbform,' and when he struts his stuff on 'Sulk' and 'Dressed for Space,' he sounds like the kind of personality-heavy singer indie culture's been hesitant to embrace over the last few years."
Since 2011, Trust has performed with DFA1979, Crystal Castles, Austra, Balam Acab, Glass Candy and Hercules and Love Affair and garnered glowing praise from top international critics at Pitchfork, VICE, The Guardian UK and many more. Trust enthralls with seductive, sinister dance tunes, pairing breathless beats with funereal synths and lyrics suffused with grim eroticism. On stage the duo play good cop/bad cop: Alfons is magnetic and provocative, while Postepski is chilly and aloof. See them on December 10th at Salon IKSV.
