yes, i know i'm about 4 months late on this one, but better late than never, so here it is for those that missed out on the infectiously broody, throbbing, murk-encrusted, NDW/darkwave-infused subterranean anthem, Candy Walls, from Toronto-based synth-wave duo Trust {Robert Alfons & Maya Postepski of Austra} off their "Candy Walls" 7" (2011).

the cover artwork is a recreation of the iconic documentation of Hayley Newman's "Stealth" performance from 1996, where Newman jumped naked on a trampoline in complete darkness for over three hours. the organizer, Casey Orr was allowed to take only a single photograph with flash during the performance. this re-performance might have made an interesting music video for the track.

MP3: Candy Walls

the "Candy Walls" 7" is available from Sacred Bones records on vinyl or as a digital download from itunes or Amazon. the full length debut album is reportedly in the works et should be released before the years out, will keep you posted!
