Men I Trust is a Canadian and French dream pop, electropop and indie rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The group was founded in early 2014. The main members of the group are Emmanuelle "Emma" Proulx (lead singer and guitarist for the band),[1] Dragos Chiriac (the group's keyboardist) and Jessy Caron (the bassist and guitarist). The two original men with the group wanted to name the band "Trust". That name, however, was already taken. That was the reason the music group was officially named "Men I Trust".[2]

Men I Trust released their self-titled extended play on May 28, 2014.[3] They released their first studio album Headroom on June 30, 2015.[4] The group was later joined by the then twenty-three-year-old Emmanuelle "Emma" Proulx. She became an official member with the group in March 2016.[5] Men I Trust released their pop single "I Hope to Be Around" in late 2017. The song was accompanied with a music video.[6]
