Weaving their songs out of their adolescent experiences, alt-rock/shoegaze trio 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 and Lorenzo Romero, Coming Up Roses recalls the likes of Wolf Alice and The Joy Formidable.
In 2018, the band landed a spot at the illustrious Baybeats Festival, 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 performing at various events and international festivals such as ASEAN Music Showcase Festival 2020, Music Matters Live 2019, Fred Perry Subculture and Canadian Music Week 2021.
In early 2019, Coming Up Roses released their debut mini-album, “Waters”, to wide acclaim. In 2021, the vinyl release of “Waters” was well received, with its first press selling out in less than 24 hours, and its second press reaching audiences around the world.
