Kickstarting the month off is a monumental celebration of 90s-influenced emo and math-pop perfection! Come 8 July, Forests will be lighting up the stage at Esplanade Concert Hall. And buckling up alongside them is four-piece friendship-core band Carpet Golf.

Dubbed as the “new heroes of the emo-math rock genre”, the trio has gained a massive global listenership since the release of their sophomore album ‘Spending Eternity In A Japanese Convenience Store’. Forests is also the only band from Asia that is on Vulture’s list of 100 Greatest Emo Songs of All Time.
