Editors’ Notes Trust is the fully formed side project of Austra timekeeper Maya Postepski and her fellow synth-pop sculptor Robert Alfons. Building on the promise of a pair of Sacred Bones singles, the Canadian duo’s debut album sounds like a twilight-zone take on the keyboard-driven cool kids who didn’t make it big during the new-wave explosion of the ‘80s. Or at least the ones who actually knew how to balance their arty inclinations with sheer accessibility; because if you look past the beat-up leather and dead-eyed stares in Trust’s press photos and actually listen, their Ginsu-sharp grooves emerge immediately (the blacklit beats of “Bulbform,” the brain-burrowing sonar blips of “F.T.F.”).
