With gleaming guitar hooks, earworm melodies and frontman Campbell Burns’ sonorous voice, it’s no wonder that Australian band Vacations has drawn fans in from all over the world. A brainchild of Burns’, Vacations started out as his songwriting vehicle in 2016, only becoming fully realised later on with the addition of members Jake Johnson, Nate Delizzotti and Joseph Van Lier.


Now a full-fledged band, the following years saw Vacations touring the world and releasing their debut studio record in 2018, Changes. 2020 marked a notable shift for the band. They released their third album Forever in Bloom, and in the same year, had their song Young from the 2016 EP Vibes go viral on TikTok, as well as their 2018 track Telephones. 2022 saw more touring for the band in Australia and America, including an appearance at Austin City Limits Festival.


The band continued to ride this upward swing into 2023—touring the UK and Ireland, appearing at New Zealand’s Outfield Festival, releasing the single Next Exit from their upcoming album Midwest, which will be release on 9 June.


These are woozy, hazy, sometimes sunshiney, sometimes lovelorn tunes sprinkled with earnest lyrics and the occasional existential musing—don’t miss this Singapore debut by Vacations and come sing your heart out with this beloved indie rock band.

Since forming in mid-2014, Singapore-based band Forests has gained a global cult following of listeners through their unique blend of 90s-influenced emo and math-pop perfection. The trio saw a huge increase in global listenership upon the release of their sophomore album, Spending Eternity In A Japanese Convenience Store, with word-of-mouth buzz from fans and critics alike hailing them as new heroes of the emo/math rock genre.


The group has been featured on publications such as The Ringer, Stereogum, NME and Bandwagon, and is the only Asian band highlighted on’s list of 100 Greatest Emo Songs of All Time as well as The Ringer’s The Most Important Emo Songs Of Every Year, with Tamago named as their pick for 2016’s most important emo song; a huge honour to be mentioned alongside legendary genre stalwarts such as American Football, Jawbreaker and Sunny Day Real Estate.


Forests’ reputation for riotous, frantic and fun live performances has led the band from performing in intimate club shows in Singapore to legendary venues abroad in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China and Malaysia.


In 2022, energised and starting fresh with a new member (guitarist Daniel) in tow, the band released their third full-length record Get In Losers, We’re Going to Eternal Damnation. Once again, fans and critics alike lauded praise on the album, with NME stating that the album is “Forests at their summit, ready to conquer the world.” And ready the band is—with the resumption of travel and live shows planned, the band is amped to tour their new material and reconnect with fans and friends everywhere. Buckle up!
