The Good Water – Bluesy Psych-Rock


User Avg

The Good Water return with Psych-Rock single ‘Tell Me What To Do’.

The Birmingham band are now a trio since we last spoke to them in 2017 who joins Rob Clements (Guitar/Vocals) and Thomas Fisher(backing vocals/Drums).

Rob said they would be spending their time getting the next two songs recorded and here we are almost 18 months down the line with ‘Tell Me What To Do’.

The fuzz-powered 3 minutes of catchy retro-rock showcases 60s pop melodies alongside blistering guitar work and follows radio airplay with Steve Lamacq who said their brand of 60’s psych is like The Coral.

Since forming in early 2015, The Good Water have been busy. The boys quickly picked up loyal support from Brum Radio with their drone-rock debut single ‘Everything Is’, gained new fans at raucous shows around the Midlands and blew away audiences supporting Mercury Rev, Super Furry Animals and Bill Ryder-Jones.

The trio’s brand of psychedelic rock grooves and nimble riffs is streamlined into tight retro-pop frameworks, and press has also been quick to spot their talents with rave reviews from tastemaker blogs and magazines, including ICM.

“Tell Me What To Do is all about confusion, the misunderstanding of feelings, and the inevitable heartache that follows,” explains Good Water frontman Ron Clements. “The upbeat bounce of the track is synonymous with a Northern Soul style groove – a genre that is steeped in teenage angst, with talcum powder and tears on the dance floor.”
