The Wedlocks are warm-hearted, sensitive and up for a good time. They're looking for someone who shares their love of post-war literature and Shostakovich's Jazz efforts. Must be hip enough to quote the works of Evelyn Waugh but not in a way that might prompt jealousy or self-doubt. Must also be ok with band bios being written in the form of lonely hearts ads.
Booted in Dr Martens, upcoming artist: 'The Prosaics' revamps 80s synths and Morrissey-esque lyrics, into modern indie-pop hits.
The Prosaics is the musical project of songs written by singer & multi-instrumentalist A.G. Williams.
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).
A.G. Williams' baritone voice croons scathing and darkly humorous observations of a tiresome world, infested with fickle television 'idols', political despair and 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...
For fans of The Smiths, Martin L. Gore (Depeche Mode), Joy Division, The Wombats, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Elbow, Noah & The Whale, Bright Eyes, The Decemberists.
A fusion of folk and rock brings out an intriguing mix from this young singer-songwriter. The mix of the modern and the historical landmarks blend well to inspire Joe to become the new hopeful in the music industry, not just for the region but for the UK stage, but to still retain the roots of all genres of music. “I was brought up with the diet of rock music like AC/DC and Scorpions to the sounds of folk and acoustic music like Eva Cassidy.” The music itself is dynamically translating the song as it’s context. From soft, simple tones from the warm strings on the guitar to the rapid orchestral feel from the piano, the synchronised approach of the instruments bring out an atmospheric, and emotional surround sound that will get each and everyone’s heart strings pulled. Joe’s narrative style and storytelling ways bring an intriguing element to songwriting altogether. His songs will make you feel various emotions, in which you feel to listen to this artist time and time again.
