B-Quartet is one of the few bands within the Singapore music scene who have constantly managed to leave their audience in awe with their stage presence and their unique approach to music.

When they played Uncommon Fields, the album launch for conformity has replaced consciousness at the Esplanade Recital Studio, B-Quartet raised the bar for album launches by used multimedia throughout their set. The multimedia videos were noticeably missing but in its place was a cozier ambience, which was inviting and personal.

Although it started pouring 20 minutes before the set, the venue was packed by the time B-Quartet started their gig. B-Quartet played songs off all 3 of their releases, including songs such as Composition #4 and  Personal Space (my favourite). They ended their hour-long set with Dry Rain, off their debut EP, The Smitten Bard, because Bani Hidir had to leave to play with 53A at Timbre. I was still hoping that they would play Alphanumeric, which they didn’t at Uncommon Fields either.

Still Homeless was one of the best gigs I’ve been to at Home Club recently. Most of the people who were present were there genuinely because they enjoyed listening to B-Quartet. There were smiles throughout the venue and it was heartwarming to see so many familiar faces, photographers, fellow musicians and music lovers gathering together to share the music of one of Singapore’s best bands. It was a wonderful experience that was shared between all who were present at the gig.

Thank you to Willy Tan of Aging Youth, the awesome people at Home Club and everyone who was present. See you at their next show!
