Weaving their songs out of their adolescent experiences, alt-rock/shoegaze quartet Coming Up Roses balances the worlds of child-like innocence and idealism with the revelations that come with adulthood. Combining elements of pop, grunge, heavy metal and shoegaze, the band manifests their emotions through the use of evocative vocal melodies and expansive sonic textures.

Led by vocalist-bassist Emily Sera, and completed by guitarists Darius Oon, Lorenzo Romero and drummer Bruce Tan, Coming Up Roses recalls the likes of Wolf Alice and Sonic Youth.

About the performers

In 2018, Coming Up Roses landed a spot in the illustrious Baybeats, Singapore's biggest free alternative music festival. Their catchy melodies, energetic songs and engaging audience interaction earned them a reputation for dynamic live performances. Highlights from the band's repertoire include performances for Fred Perry Subculture, Music Matters Live 2019 and ASEAN Music Showcase Festival 2020.

In early 2019, Coming Up Roses released their debut mini-album Waters to wide acclaim. Its success on music-streaming platforms landed its singles 'Fall' and 'Lies' in Spotify's 'Singapore's Top Acts' and Apple Music's 'The A-List: Singapore Music' playlists alongside the biggest names in the scene. Coming Up Roses is on the fast-track to cementing themselves as one of Singapore's most exciting live acts. The band is currently writing their debut full-length album.

The Lunchtime Concert Series aims to provide a platform for leading creative musical figures from Singapore and overseas. With a focus on showcasing original work, the eclectic curation features a broad cross section of musical styles designed to expose LASALLE music students and the general public to both hidden and well-known talents.
