It’s been a busy old year for Bristol’s Trust Fund aka Ellis Jones. In the same exact amount of time it’s taken Frank Ocean to get my hopes up and then slash them, Trust Fund have released not one, but two absolutely fantastic albums. He started the year with the lo-fi ‘No One’s Coming For Us’ and finished it off with the amazing ‘Seems Unfair’, both of which could be considered albums of the year.
He’s also showing no signs of stopping, having just announced a UK tour for early next year. As well as dates in Leeds, Manchester, London and Brighton, he’ll kick the tour off right here in Bristol on the 26th January. Supported throughout the trip comes from the wonderful Personal Best and brilliant Dirtygirl. He’s also said the tour will include a raffle, comedy from Adam Todd of The Spook School and “Three Lions Karaoke” which we hope is what we think it is. All in all, it’s a party you cant afford to miss. Take a look at all the dates below, with a poster created by the brilliant Sumena Florence.
