CL Critic Matthew Warhol Recommends: Men I Trust have been my white whale for the the last few years. And now is my time to grab the bull by the horns. I became a fan over 2020’s quarantine—their smooth, spacey sounds perfectly fit the prolonged insular malaise of that time. I would go on lonely walks and think of a better time while listening to some to their best singles, “Tailwhip,” “Numb,” “Lauren,” and “Show Me How.” Emmanuelle Proulx’s voice is fragile and soothing—she almost whispers into your ear while you’re listening. However, my favorite element of Men I Trust is the superb bass playing of Jessy Carson. He could have phoned it in on these songs and they would still be great, but he chose to put his whole foot into every bass line, creating face-scrunching grooves that would leave the best bass players green with envy. It’s that craftsmanship that separates this Montreal trio from the endless sea of ever-growing indie rock. — MW

From the venue:

Founded in 2014, Men I Trust, is an indie band from Montreal (Canada) composed of Jessy (bass/ guitar), Dragos (keyboards) and Emma (vocals/ guitar). With smooth, chin-bouncing rhythms & bass lines, warm guitars and alluringly subdued vocals, longevity - in all its forms - is an underlying theme in their craft. At its most spacious, listening to Men I Trust feels like you’re gliding on a never-ending wave; at its tightest, they still provide pockets of time to catch your breath. Men I Trust will release their third full-length album in early 2019, with more tour dates to be announced soon.
