About Us

Reputedly abandoned as an infant on the unforgiving permafrost of northeast Newfoundland and, as legend has it, raised by sasquatch, the Linger Effect is the type of one-man music machine that arrives only once per generation, if that.
Compared to U2 by people who don't know anything about music, it would be more accurate to say that the Linger Effect encapsulates the entire history of popular music that isn't the Beatles. Velvety 6-string chuggalug, waves of chilly Teutonic synth, a dash of Eurodisco, hints of Mancunian post-punk - all bound together by a sticky, spunky aplomb that only a lifetime of being truly switched on and steetwise can engender.

Surrender to the Linger Effect! Tap that foot and shake that ass while Kent's lyrical explorations of late capitalist urban ennui variously move you to shout \"testify!\" or to weep into your TV dinner - or, at the very least, leave you craving a silverfox of your very own. It's a heady brew, a whole complete reality and arguably Canada's freshest pop sensation since Glass Tiger.
