TR/ST (fka Trust) is the musical alias of producer, singer, and performer Robert Alfons. Born in Winnipeg, Canada (but based in Los Angeles for the past decade), he has released a string of celebrated albums fusing swooning synth-pop, confessional darkwave, and anthemic emotion: TRST (2012), Joyland (2014), The Destroyer – Part One (2019), and The Destroyer – Part Two (2019). In late 2023, TR/ST joined the Dais Records roster, announcing the union with the release of the single “Robrash”, while hinting at more new music ahead. January 2024 sees the release of the new, minimally titled “TR/ST EP”, featuring four new tracks in addition to “Robrash” : the new dancefloor heater “Run” featuring Canadian hyperpop star Cecile Believe, a beautiful cover of the Pet Shop Boys classic 1990 anthem “Being Boring” featuring Jake Shears, the delicate and gauzy nearly-ambient composition “Evercall”, and an official release of the fan favorite “Slug”, previously only released to YouTube in 2015.

Alfons confirms he is in the studio working on a new album, expanding their singular sound in ways both cinematic and surprising: “Bigger, better, beautiful, and buried in mud.”
