MEN I TRUST – ” Billie Toppy “

Posted: October 3, 2022 in MUSIC

Montreal group Men I Trust’s latest sounds something like the Cocteau Twins trying to re-create Parquet Courts’ “Stoned and Starving”… in other words, post-punk bliss, but in a crunchy shell. The drums and bass line push “Billie Toppy” downhill, but Emmanuelle Proulx’s voice elevates this affair into something mysterious and gorgeous; the result is a studio masterclass that also begs to be experienced live in concert. 

Following “Hard to Let Go,” the single they released in June, Men I Trust have shared another new song, the upbeat “Billie Toppy” where a propulsive bass-line contrasts with Emmanuelle Proulx’s chilled out vocals.
