Best Coast Tour 2021
With guests Timothy Nelson Band
Friday 19th Feb @ The Prince Of Wales Hotel, Bunbury
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 honor, 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.
Since the cancellation of the bands sold out hometown shows in 2020 due to Covid the band are back to elate home town fans with a string of dates across WA playing all the songs you love new and old.
