Verge Collection are only halfway through what can only be described as their formative year. And there's no slowing them down - they have now released their debut EP Open Plan Living off the back of playing BIGSOUND, Rottofest and a whole lot of national dates alongside Skegss, Stonefield, and City Calm Down. Ben, the lead man of Verge Collection has one of the most distinctive voices in the aussie music scene at the moment, and here's how it came about "it's taken ages to actually a find a natural singing voice and it doesn't sound contrived 'you know how people grow up listening to american bands and when they come to write their own songs they end up sounding american, it's hard to unlearn that accent".
Open Plan Living follows the band's debut 2015 summer single 'Our Place' which propelled them into the spotlight. "I liked the name [Open Plan Living] because it had a bit of double meaning," reveals frontman Ben Morris. We spoke to Ben about the E.P and what it entails, "the E.P is pretty diverse, 'Class Of 09' and 'Postcodes' are polar opposites songs, one was a demo from ages back and the other one is alt rock track. We wanted to do something that would give a good indication of what it would sound like if we were to make an album, it's kind of a sales pitch in a way".
