Trust is the alter ego of Toronto artist Robert Alfons.

Formed in 2009 along with collaborator Maya Postepski, Trust released its first singles, "Candy Walls" and "Bulbform," on Brooklyn-based Sacred Bones Records in 2011 before signing with Arts & Crafts for the 2012 release of debut full length, TRST.

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's Tales of lust, wax, and erotomania carry along on a dense black vapor of speed, space and tears.

Trust is a pop hit factory buried deep in the mud.

Cold Cave is the electronic music of acclaimed musician, writer and artist Wesley Eisold. Beginning in 2007, Cold Cave has become a name synonymous with the contemporary resurgence of Darkwave and Synth Pop sub-genres, propelling Cold Cave to perform at world class museums The Getty and the Guggenheim, as well as performances with legends Sonic Youth, The Jesus and Mary Chain, among others. The sound has spanned from experimental industrial noise to rock'n'roll influenced electronic music.

According to the Guardian, "Wesley Eisold is an absolutely new, young god of nihilism and despair – he brilliantly captures Cold Cave's aesthetic: the Morrissey of How Soon Is Now wailing over Nitzer Ebb beats and New Order melodies."

According to Eisold, if anything, his music reflects what it feels like to live in the present. Eisold, whose baritone is as rich and resonating as that of Phil Oakey, Nick Cave or Iggy Pop, says "Of course we love the lineage of the genre, early experiments with machines to convey human emotion; the marriage between pop and industrial music. At the time it was documenting the early stages of a new world, and we are recording what it feels like to be alive in that world."
