About Coming Up Roses

Alt-rock trio Coming Up Roses combine elements of folk, grunge and shoegaze, bringing anthemic catharsis to the masses.
Alternative band

Weaving their songs out of their adolescent experiences, alt-rock trio Coming Up Roses balances the worlds of child-like innocence and idealism with the revelations that come with adulthood. Combining elements of folk, grunge and shoegaze, the band manifests their emotions through the use of evocative vocal melodies and expansive sonic textures. Citing influences such as Wolf Alice and The Joy Formidable, Coming Up Roses is fronted by vocalist-bassist Emily Sera and completed by guitarists Darius Oon and Lorenzo Romero. Since forming in 2018, their catchy melodies, energetic songs, and engaging audience interaction have earned them a reputation as one of the most exciting live bands in the region - performing at international showcases and festivals including Music Matters Live, Fred Perry Subculture and Canadian Music Week. In early 2019, Coming Up Roses issued their debut EP, 'Waters', to wide acclaim. In 2021, the vinyl release of 'Waters' was well received internationally, with its first press selling out in less than 24 hours. Moving forward, the band are now looking to take a leap of faith; releasing their sophomore EP 'Everything Is' and leaving the shores of Singapore to pursue a career in music in the UK.

Coming Up Roses' Reviews

On Friday, I attended a performance by local alt-rock band Coming Up Roses at the Esplanade Annexe Studio. It was their last live gig here before they embark on a career in Britain. What a commanding performance it was. Watching the quartet belt out their oeuvre as only they can, I was enthralled by the lilting vocals and chiming guitars, and experienced frisson that I seldom feel in performances nowadays. Coming Up Roses obviously work very hard at their craft. I never thought I would use the word "polished" to describe an indie band, but they are the epitome of it. They were also humble enough to give credit for much of their success to the Baybeats music festival and Mr Leonard Soosay, owner of Snakeweed Studios, who produced their tracks. I wish Coming Up Roses all the best as they pursue their dream and do us proud the world over.

Coming Up Roses have shared their new single and video, ‘Would You Ever’. The indie-pop tune is taken from the Singapore-based band’s new EP ‘Everything Is’, out today (Friday, 20th May). “‘Would You Ever’ is about leaving the life that you currently live to pursue the life that you’ve always wanted, despite the things that you’ve gone through,” the band explain. Guitarist Lorenzo Romero adds: “‘Everything Is’ is a compilation of songs that reflect on our exploration of ourselves and the world around us. We’re starting to find our place and develop that sense of belonging, and we’re excited for the road ahead.” Their latest music arrives ahead of their performance at Canadian Music Week Toronto, which runs from 6th-11th June and is this year celebrating its 40th anniversary.
