The project of Robert Alfons, TR/ST combines sparkling synth pop and grimy industrial beats into expansive songs filled with longing, lust, and despair. Dominated by sinuous melodies and Alfons' deep, dramatic vocals, TR/ST plumbed pitch-black depths on 2012's Juno Award-nominated debut, TRST. Alfons let more light -- and dance influences -- into 2014's Joyland and balanced both sides of his music on 2019's two-part album The Destroyer, but each incarnation of TR/ST delivers compelling electronic pop with a surprisingly wide streak of humanity.

TR/ST, The Steel Yard, London - 9th April 2019
One of the best gig I have been in years. The show was as much onstage as in the public. Fantastic crowd, great energy. Robert Alfons is SO talented! I can only wish him to get the success he deserves and become big. He knows how to craft brilliant dance pop songs. A genius in the making!
