    A Return To Form

    Brunch, Published on 09/09/2018

    » There is an oft-recounted anecdote that tells the story of how B5 came to be B5. Basically, each of the group's members -- Suwira "Q" Boonrod, Mariam Grey, Saksit "Tor" Vejsupaporn, Chalatit "Ben" Tantiwut and Uthai "Cake" Poonyamund -- was slated to pursue a solo career as part of Bakery Music's new crop of artists. But that was before they shared the stage for Boyd Kosiyabong's Million Ways To Love: Part I concert, subsequently leading fans to believe that they were an actual, single-unit group. The label, apparently subscribing to the "there's no such thing as bad publicity" ethos, decided to market them as a quintet called B5. And what a decision that was, for their 2004 debut Event became a huge success, giving Bakery Music, whose popularity had been waning during the country's 1997 economic crisis, a much-needed boost.

    Tirzah's Kind of Love

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 02/09/2018

    » 'I'm not dancing, I'm fighting/ I'm not shining, I'm burning," Tirzah Mastin sings over the sparse rigidity of four-to-the-floor beats on the title track off her 2013's debut I'm Not Dancing EP. This was her way of rebelling against the EDM trends in pop music -- an admirably bold statement coming from someone who was just starting out. Hailing from Essex, Mastin operates mononymously as Tirzah. Under that moniker she explores her penchant for all things leftfield, fusing post-grime and futuristic R&B with experimental pop -- all courtesy of her school pal producer Mica Levi.

They almost made it in 2014 for the aborted Silverlake Festival in Pattaya, cancelled due to the volatile political climate, so there was no small amount of anticipation ahead of their show at Bangkok's packed Moonstar Studio on Tuesday night.
