Alina Baraz – [Trust]

Alina Baraz was relatively quiet last year but she did drop off a stellar track in “To Me” which got me hyped for what she has in store ahead. No word on a full-length project from the elusive crooner, but today she dropped off a new single “Trust,” which is hopefully a sign of things to come.

Always succeeding at building an entrancing, lush atmosphere, Baraz delivers yet again. Her feathery vocals are draped atop the string-based boardwork to create the signature ethereal feel. Though it feels delicate “Trust” still carries some punch with a crescendoing chorus and I really dig the progression of the track from the cascading, big feel to the soft, stripped-down outro.
