The Kents are four indie-pop obsessed boys from the town of Lindsay, Ontario.
They recently unleashed their single “The Stakes” from their upcoming debut EP.
Waking EP, produced by Derek Hoffman (Elwins, DCF) at Fox Sounds in Toronto with mastering from Dan Weston (Shad, City And Colour), encapsulates lyrical explorations of family, loss and separation from the comfort of adolescence with a hook-hungry, pop filter that controls the chaos.
Formed in 2014, The Kents is comprised of Warren Frank (vocals), Freddy Kwon (guitar), Luke Shauf (bass) and Tanner Paré (drums).
Their energetic live performance has shared various stages with The Trews, The Strumbellas, Ben Caplan and taken notable venues like Toronto’s Horseshoe Tavern, Lee’s Palace and the Historic Red Dog in Peterborough hostage in hot pursuit of affordable, communal celebration.
