Descending into the neon-lit corridors of Toronto’s underground scene, Robert Alfons, famously known as TR/ST and formerly as Trust, emerged in 2010 like a suave glitch in the matrix. His unique brand of dark electronic pop defied the norm, rapidly evolving into a cult favorite. This musical maestro blends somber beats with a mystique that gives you just a taste of his unique sound.
As TR/ST soared past a flurry of global tours and relocated to the picturesque Los Angeles, the project transcended its original identity, becoming an institution in dark dance music. Alfons added ‘Joyland’ (2014) and the formidable ‘The Destroyer Parts 1 & 2’ (2019) to his repertoire, riding the waves of the music industry with a masterful touch.
Now, in a significant move, TR/ST has joined forces with Dais Records. Marking this partnership is the release of the dynamic single “Robrash,” a much-awaited treat for fans since his last release in 2019. This track is an electronic odyssey, with buzzing synth basslines and mechanized vocals, crowned by a hook that lingers long after the music stops.
Blare this anthem loud.
Co-produced with the enigmatic Nightfeelings and mixed by the legendary Nick Launay, Robrash points to TR/ST’s electrifying future in 2024. Available now, along with its instrumental version, it’s a hint of the exciting, heart-pounding tunes ahead. The TR/ST journey is embarking on a new sonic chapter, and it’s not to be missed.
Catch TR/ST at Cruel World Festival on May 11 in Pasadena.
