New Band of the Day #219: A.A. Williams

A.A. Williams

A.A. Williams self-titled debut EP is out now.

Who: A.A. Williams.

What: Alternative rock.

Where: London, United Kingdom

Why: Hailing from London and crafting a reflective and mournful take on alternative rock is A.A. Williams. Calling to mind the emotional heft of artists like Emma Ruth Rundle and Chelsea Wolfe, Williams music is a style that seems to bridge the middle ground between folk and alternative rock but with a metal sensibility in the mood and atmosphere.

For me, A.A. Williams sounds like Sandy Denny if she was coming of age musically in Seattle in the late ’80s. She offers music that is immediate and feels like a warm blanket on a bitter winter’s evening.

Catch A.A. Williams at ArcTanGent this summer.
