Aghast Agape





Prosaics played their first gig at the now-defunct East Village venue known as Brownie's in 2002, quickly gaining praise from the local press and a attracting an ever-growing audience. Since that time they've honed their collaborative intelligent pop songwriting into a true art form and come into their own as a band. Aghast Agape, a five-song EP, is the group's first commercially available release and comes via the capable hands of Dim Mak's Steve Aoki. Drawing on influences from such greats as the Smiths, Joy Division, Gang Of Four and The Cure, Prosaics can be loosly compared to more modern day counterparts like Longwave and The Stills. The brooding, passionate, Robert Smith meets Ian Curtis-sounding vocals of Andy Comer (formerly of the band Tel Aviv) spearhead what is an addictive blend of old-meets-new musical exploration. Straight ahead, driving rhythms and schizophrenic, yet precise guitar work are to be expected as well. While this EP doesn't showcase a great deal of diversity in sound or song structure, it does highlight a powerful band on the verge of great success.
