'A young enthusiastic artist with an original approach to the music he performs’- Doug Welch (BBC RADIO KENT)
The Prosaics is the musical project of songs written by singer & multi-instrumentalist A.G. Williams.
Booted in Dr Martens, upcoming artist: 'The Prosaics' revamps 80s synths and Morrissey-esque lyrics, into modern indie-pop hits. Drawing on his English folk roots, the unmistakable blending of acoustic & electronic elements, as the vehicle for A.G.’s crooning vocal, is a uniquely poppy formula; that bends genres and snuffs expectations.
Songs of English grit and whimsy paint the slate skies and drizzle of the industrial Medway Towns (as the Northern 'mad-chester' scene did some 30 years ago). His lyrics provide scathing and darkly humorous insight into a tiresome world- infested with fickle television 'idols', political despair and run-of-the-mill chart music.
The Prosaics has headlined and performed at various festivals and venues across the UK, alongside esteemed acts such as The Magic Gang, The Amazons, Mystery Jets etc. His following in the local scene is constantly growing and he is thought of as an artist with a bright future ahead. The Prosaics appeared on tour in the Summer of 2018 following the launch of his self-titled debut EP in Camden (singles from which can be found on Spotify, iTunes etc) and material from his full album 'COLDSAW' is scheduled for release in 2019.
The Prosaics' songs are far from prosaic. In fact, they're hardly prosaic at all...
