“Since forming in July 2007, the Vergers have been something of an an unknown quantity in the underground rock scene in Denver — but it's not for lack of effort or quality material. Like most bands, the Vergers wrestled with a bevy of influences early on, but while its roots are obvious, the act has long outgrown the clumsiness of a new band. You can hear a bit of Stephen Fellows's emotional stridency in Trip Wilkes's vocals, and the band has always excelled at capturing the urgent vibe of English post-punk bands of the '80s. With their latest material, the Vergers display a keen ear for bright, swirling melodies that sound hopeful and triumphant even as they trade in the darker shadings of atmosphere.”
