The Prosaics, aka A.G. Williams, is one man with a machine, who through his songs offers both romance and disappointment and is a solution to the vacuous pop that seems to dominate the airwaves. Frown is the debut single from this artist released via DistroKid and explores the under-appreciated notion that all emotions should be worthwhile in the human experience. A.G. spoke with The Fountain about the music in more depth as well as plans for 2021.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Frown?
What an exceptional taste in music people have! I expected nothing less than the fantastic response the single has had so far- after all, it is bloody good…
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
The sound of The Prosaics is best described as a raised eyebrow, a disapproving glance over one’s spectacles, a jog around an amputee ward, a takeaway curry on a brisk walk home, an explicit funeral wreath or simply as something worth listening to. For fans of: Gorillaz, John Maus, Jack Stauber, Martin L Gore (Depeche Mode), La Roux, The The, Nick Cave, The Smiths, Portishead, The Postal Service & Pulp.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
Most likely just revel in the ensuing fame and wealth from this release. I intend to use the money to purchase an actual duvet, instead of sleeping on the mountain of fan mail in my living room as I ordinarily do each night- it has been causing me some lower back pain of late.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
The smaller the venue the better. I want you to be uncomfortably close to me on stage, so that you can hand me batteries when my vintage synths fail, dish me heckles that I can put down and get a far better aim for flinging any and all undergarments my way.
