It’s a busy day for Verge Collection, as they have dropped a new single, announced 11 tour dates – playing with the likes of Skegss, City Calm Down and The Vanns – and dropped information for the release of their debut EP ‘Open Plan Living’.
‘Postcodes’ is the new single from Verge Collection, and it is the third single released form their forthcoming debut EP ‘Open Plan Living’. And while it is a good song, I didn’t enjoy it as much as ‘Our Place‘, which is currently my favourite song of theirs.
Verge Collection’s debut EP ‘Open Plan Living’ is due out in September, but before the release of it, Verge Collection released three songs, two above (Our Place & Postcodes) and a third song called ‘Class of 09’. The EP will be released on Friday, September 23.
On the release of the upcoming debut EP frontman Ben Morris revealed:
“I liked the name because it had a bit of double meaning. To me it just means living a life with little to no real ‘plans’. Lyrically I think theres cohesion, the songs to me sound quite optimistic despite some of the themes that are danced around. There was quite a lot of material to choose from when we finally got round to recording the EP, so I was able to cherry pick songs that showed the musical scope of what myself and the band could do.”
Head on over to Verge Collection’s Bandcamp to grab a copy of those songs now.
