Contemporary consumers are bombarded daily with headlines of shootings, mindless killings, starvation, devastating statistics, pain, loss, heartless decisions and a crumbling environment. From our newsfeeds to newspapers, we are confronted with information that can make you feel like the world is disintegrating before our very eyes. This plethora of devastation and its sheer reach and scale can make it feel as though there is little we can do as individuals to make a change or difference.

Gotye’s ‘Eyes Wide Open’ resonates with me now, more than ever. It feels crucial for us all to be reminded that, ‘we’re all in the same boat, staying afloat for the moment’. We are all finding our way on this earth. We are all made equal. We are all worthy of justice. We all deserve safety. It is time to show our humanity.


Linger is a singer-songwriter who hails from Sydney, Australia.

In late September 2016, Línger released her debut single ‘Flyon’ and has already proven she is a powerful force to be admired. The single, and EP ‘tuple’ were recorded in her home in Sydney, Australia, produced by fellow Sydney artist, Xavier Dunn.

Línger is a collaboration between experience and emotion that has come to fruition through years of feeling, longing and by simply being. Her words, originating in part through the creation of poetry, seek to make sense of the world which at times mystifies us all. Her EP ‘tuple’ is inspired by the five elements of air, fire, water, earth and space. Attuned to divinity, each of Línger’s songs is able to insightfully capture moments in time that reflect what it means to be human.

“They crest and billow gracefully, enchanting us within rich swelling tides of atmospheric electronica and reverberating acoustics…I’m left shivering in the wake of this breathtaking jewel.”
