New band The Quartermasters has a deliberate air of mystery surrounding it – no photos and a cryptic descriptor like “indie supergroup” given on its official press. But listening to its debut single, “Catch On Fire” it’s clear that at least in this song, the music is unadulterated country music – nothing ‘indie’ about it!
But seriously folks, I don’t give a fuck about the labels – only the music and in that respect, it’s great to hear a Singapore band playing this kind of pop-rock music. Truth be told, I recognise a Charles J Tan song when I hear it – so mystery solved! Not that far removed from his solo work, which has a strong country-folk vibe running right through it.
Anyhoo! The debut EP can be pre-ordered from http://smarturl.it/qmpre now.
The EP will be officially launched on Saturday, 10th October 2015 at a ticketed show in Lepark, Chinatown. More details to follow.
