Trust Fund had a hectic 2014. They toured with Los Campesinos, landed on multiple end-of-year lists, and broke the internet by playing with a bunch of cute dogs in their video for “Cut Me Out” - which we premiered in December and is objectively the happiest music video of all time. We now have their debut album, No One’s Coming For Us, premiering above. It is, objectively, not the happiest album of all time, but it is one of the most moving albums ever written since Rivers Cuomo got bored of being brutally honest.
Based in Bristol, Trust Fund is a collaborative project fronted by Ellis Jones, who has a knack for capturing feelings of confusion, anger and sadness whilst also being a source of comfort for all those things. Considering the majority of us spent January in an emotional slump sustained by Netflix, leftover Christmas chocolate and arguments about the central heating, this collection of simple yet affecting songs is the answer to all our problems. It’s the catalyst for reflection, self-analysis and the kick up the butt we needed all at once.
But regardless of when you hear them, or how many times, every song on No One’s Coming For Us feels like it has entered your life at precisely the right moment. If there was a sound for holding hands, this would be it.
