THE GUITARS - JOSH STAPLES
"The New Trust are one of those 'hard-to-explain' bands. I’m not sure how a band can be described as tuneful and difficult at the same time but The New Trust seem to pull it off. Paired down to a three piece, the band continues to intrigue..." - Sound as Language
"This is a band that personifies true synergy, with no one member standing out but instead all three working together to create something greater than the sum of their beings. Josh Staples’ angelic alto showcases a repertoire of yelps, whispers and hushed spoken word, while Sara Sanger’s wandering guitar riffs punctuate and drive – rather than define – the songs. And drummer Julia Lancer beats out as the unfailing heart at the center of the band. One thing is apparent with this album: The New Trust has not abandoned its sound. It has evolved." - Wonka Vision Magazine, Natalye Childress Smith
