Verge Collection


Hailing from the infamously fertile musical landscape of Perth, Western Australia VERGE COLLECTION expertly balance classic pop sensibilities and working class poetry to channel the collective conscious of suburban Australian milennials.

Songwriter and front-man Ben Arnold wears an influence on his sleeve like a badge of honour, taking cues from classic songwriters like Reed, Young, Dylan and Bowie, and putting a refreshingly Australian spin on a familiar brand of spirited and earnest pop in the same vein as Kelly, McLennon and more recently, Barnett have done before him.

The result is charming, witty and effortlessly catchy. His songs have the ability to hoist you high to the point of chills and a stupid grin, before making you plummet just as quickly into an existential nosedive.

“Songs so relatable you have to check you haven’t just accidentally pocket dialled your mate”
