Rising Bands You Should Listen To: ‘Men I Trust’

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

You should have Montreal’s Men I Trust on your radar for 2020. The band has been building steady buzz for years with their warm, romantic melodies. The trio hit some groovy bass lines with some pretty awesome keyboard chords that just fit singer Emmanuelle Proulx’s voice perfectly.

Men I Trust sets itself apart with their frank stories of love and nostalgia which is different from other indie pop bands who try to keep themselves as mysterious as possible. Their standout tracks you need to check out are “Lauren,” “Show Me How,” and their most recent single “Say, Can You Hear.”


The band has been releasing a steady stream of tracks ahead of their album Oncle Jazz. And what’s super cool about them is that they record, mix and master all of their own work. These guys are the real deal.


So check them out!
