Virna Lindt's music, although easy to enjoy, can be difficult to define, but her work has clearly influenced some of today's most popular indie artists (Peaking Lights, Broadcast, Mr. Twin Sister).
Most people know Lindt for her 1983 atmospheric lounge jam, "Underwater Boy" from the album, Shiver. What doesn't seem to be as well known is that Lindt's catalogue is full of unclassifiable gems. "Atmospheric" or "lounge" may provide brief insight to what Lindt is creating here, but "Underwater Boy" pulls from funk and electronic genres in a unique way that's only recently been revisited by Brooklyn band, Mr. Twin Sister; and may have initially taken its cues from ambient jazz tracks like Roger Webb's "Moon Bird" (1971). Lindt has a rare and visionary touch that's gradually receiving the notice it deserves.
Another standout track on Shiver is the closing track, "I Experienced Love". Here, Lindt uses a bit of synth pop and dub to create an uplifting island anthem for love-bound travelers.
