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's effervescent pop splits the difference between ornate classic pop and chilled-out dancefloor fodder, for a sound that sands down every possible rough edge. In this case, that's a good thing: The band's slippery-smoothness is a big part of its slyly bouncy, easygoing, stress-free appeal.” - NPR

“The band now has a catalog of luscious melodies, groovy basslines and soft, delicate vocals, that stands out among the thousands of guitar-toting indie bands of their ilk. ” - i-D
