There are moments in a band’s career when they are on the verge of stardom. Montreal-born outfit Men I Trust is currently clocking in over 500 million streams on Spotify. The band is yet to make their commercial breakthrough, but they are steadily creating a massive following. Meanwhile, their shows are also selling out all over the world. For a band that barely fits in your back pocket, Men I Trust is definitely rising fast. Emerging from Quebec in 2014, Men I Trust was formed when high school friends Dragos Chiraic and Jessy Caron unexpectedly reunited at Universite Laval. The two friends worked on some tracks and released their self-titled album. The duo performed in a few local gigs that same year, including M for Montreal, Quebec City Summer, and Montreal Jazz Festival.
The following year, the duo brought in a couple of vocalists to record their sophomore album, Head Room. The line-up comprised Ghostly Kisses and Emmanuelle Proulx. In 2016, the band recruited Proulx as their permanent vocalist and dropped the singles “Lauren” and “Humming Man.” To support Headroom, the band embarked on a massive world tour, which included shows in China. The band took footage of their trips in Shenzen, Shanghai, and Beijing, which they later used for the music video of "Plainview."
In 2019, Men I Trust released their third album, Oncle Jazz. They reportedly made the record while isolating themselves in rural Quebec. According to the band, the isolation put them in a different creative move and they could focus more “because there’s nothing to do outside of the house except for walking and thinking about music.” Oncle Jazz spawned the singles “Show Me How,” “Tail Whip,” “Seven,” and “Say, Can You Hear.” These songs debuted during their 2019 tour, as well as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Two years later, the band dropped their latest effort Untourable Album. The record featured the single “Hard to Let Go,” followed by “Billie Toppy.” Last year, Men I Trust made their TV debut on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and performed “Show Me” with rapper Joey Badass.
