Men I Trust’s ‘Show Me How’ is a reminder that summer will come again
MEN I TRUST, connoisseurs of dreamy disco pop, are back with their latest release ‘Show Me How’. Like their past couple of releases including 2017’s ‘Hope To Be Around’ and ‘Tailwhip’, the single takes listeners away from the dreariness of city reality and into the haziness of road trips and spontaneous camping getaways. And with our summer now at an end, and winter standing stonily at the end of Autumn’s 3-month tunnel, it is a reminder that those sunlit days are sure to come again.
It is a thoughtful track with an endearing hook. The soft guitar caresses the angelic vocals cozily and the drums provide a solid, slightly R&B, base. The corroborating video clip seems to portray a content loneliness where vocalist, Emma, can be seen walking through a luminously lit cityscape. It depicts an obscurity, a dreaminess that comes with the daydreams we associate with new lovers. And like all of Men I Trust’s discography, it is a tender almost bittersweet love song; a slow and succulent but delicate retelling of a pleasant and hopeful adventure.
Men I Trust comprise of triplet Emma, Dragos and Jessy who originate from Canadian city, Montreal. Staying close to the production process, both with their music and videos, the group really shows what it means to produce a truly original sound through self-proficiency. This is again made true by that fact that they are not signed to a label. ‘Show Me How’, their first release of 2018, is a sincere and exciting start to the year and with their last album release dating three years ago, we’re hopeful for another soon.
