Breaking free from standard time-signatures, Math Rock came into its own with asymmetrical time signatures of 7/8, 11/8 and 13/8. The result? — Pure aural intoxication. Chaotic, melodic, but always stimulating to the senses; the unique genre redefines the angular relationship between time and space in ultra-creative sounds. It is truly the sound of this zeitgeist.

Heading the line-up is LITE (Japan), hailed as “one of Japan’s top instrumental rock acts”. Founded in 2003, LITE has successfully toured the US, UK and Asia with their brand of sonic artistry that combines the precision and musicianship of Prog-Rock with the emotionally charged cinematic compositions of art rock, in a heavier, more modern package that they describe as math rock.

The line-up features home-grown Singapore band Forests, with their heady blend of math rock, pop (and even emo) and grab a chance to catch our very own NUS bands in rock heaven.

Check this space for updates on your favourite NUS bands that will be joining LITE and Forests on stage.
