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.

Following the success of their 2018 release ‘Flaneur’ the band are back with their
latest effort ‘Ludlow Hithergreen’. 13 songs pressed on pink wax featuring singles
‘Synthetic Fibres’ and ‘Cover It Up’.

“After the passing of my dad in 2016, I spent a lot of time driving back and forth
down south to my uncles house in Bunbury. The isolation of traveling alone provided
me with a lot of time to think things through. Ludlow Hithergreen is some of the
thoughts I had during those long drives” – Ben Arnold
