Canadian dark electropop master, TR/ST (pronounced as “trust”), explores sexuality and the struggle with shame that people often go through in his new single “Bicep.” Taking off with a permutation of shuffling beats, echo swoops, and stacking arpeggios, “Bicep” is a smoky electronica that exudes the inner existential madness we swirl into as we try to accept our desires and sexuality. Stream below:

“Bicep” is from TR/ST’s upcoming record, which will drop in the early 2018. Rober Alfons is the mastermind behind TR/ST who started songsculpting back in 2010 along with former member Maya Postepski. His two previous albums, TRST (2012) and Joyland (2014), received wide acclaim and topped Billboard charts. As of now, he has some tour dates coming up:
