Show Preview - Trust w/ ERAAS - 3.19.13 - Brillobox - Concert Preview

Two tremendous acts will be making a stop at the Brillobox next Tuesday, 3.19 on their way to SXSW. Toronto based Trust on Arts & Crafts Records along with Brooklynites ERAAS (Felte Records) are the double bill for the evening. Trust has been gaining major accolades for their debut album TRST from the likes of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and many others. They play a dark, synthpop which reminds one of the early 80's electronica movement. Robert Alfons is the man behind the band. The project was "born out of desperation in the brutal Canadian winter of 2009" when he "began writing songs about nostalgia, lust, and erotomania". The music brings back a sense of nostalgia where a decade of dance and decadence thrived.

From ERAAS press:

ERAAS is a tribal atmospheric quartet based in Brooklyn led by its two founding members Robert Toher and Austin Stawiarz which arose from the ashes of New England-based project Apse in 2011, forming with the desire to create more ritualistic and darker themes. Live, the band, generally as a 4-piece, elicit foreboding, cautionary themes, mixing driving percussion, insistent basslines tangled with hypnotic guitars and ethereal vocals. Like a dream (or a nightmare), this is a record that invites you into its own world, a world that's strange and unfamiliar, but also fascinating and compelling, with subtleties and intricacies that reveal themselves with repeated listens. ERAAS is an album with its own distinct sense of place — a place that's worth visiting again and again.

Show begins at 9:30p with doors at 9p. Tickets can be found here. You can find more information about the bands here:
