COMING UP ROSES
Hailing from the island nation of Singapore, London-based alternative rock band Coming Up Roses forge a sound that is distinctively familiar - yet you can’t quite put your finger on.
Having relocated from Singapore to the UK in late 2022, their move is footnoted by the release of new single “Utopia Reimagined: These Corners”. Produced by Joshua Rumble (Florence Welch, Black Country New Road) and mixed by Caesar Edmunds (Foals, Beach House), the sprawling track showcases a band in its ascendancy.
Led by singer-bassist Emily Sera, the group has emerged as one of the most promising acts out of Southeast Asia owing to their dynamic live shows and heartfelt lyrical themes. In addition to tours in Taiwan and Indonesia, the band have played festivals such as Canadian Music Week, Fred Perry Subculture and The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions. To date, the band has released 2 EPs, debut effort Waters (2018) and sophomore EP Everything Is (2022).
Despite the bittersweet nature of leaving their lives behind in Singapore, Coming Up Roses are ready to embark on their new adventure.
