If we had to compare August 23rd's music to anything, it would definitely be a magical shoegaze version of The Smiths, and who doesn't love The Smiths? We sure do, and we one hundred percent love our local legend August 23rd.
Musician William started under the name August 23rd back in 2013, on the 23rd of August (The name is very suiting and absolutely we love it). Since then, Will has been playing local shows in the city of Adelaide and has gathered quite a following. August 23rd's music is, as described by himself, "for fans of Twin Peaks and reverb" and "music to stare at your feet to". For the people who love to curl up in bed and have their music blasting through their headphones, we have found the perfect artist for you!
Will has released six EP's throughout his experience as August 23rd, and is getting ready to released his very first album. This is one you'll be wanting to keep an eye out for, as we've been blessed with so many fantastic tracks already, we can't wait to hear what August 23rd has to share with fans.
"My new album is going to sound like what frat boys who hate bright eyes think bright eyes sounds like." - August 23rd
