If you like old school 60’s psych, bands like The Coral, you’ll love this – Steve Lamacq, BBC 6Music
Birmingham psych-rockers The Good Water are back with their new single Tell Me What To Do and a new set of live dates. The fuzz-powered 3 minutes of catchy retro-rock showcases 60s pop melodies alongside blistering guitar work and follows radio airplay with Steve Lamacq, Mary-Anne Hobbes, Tom Robinson and Shaun Keaveny for their singles See Your Light and Mansaid.
“Tell Me What To Do is all about confusion, the misunderstanding of feelings, and the inevitable heartache that follows,” explains frontman Rob 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.”
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. Their two 2017 singles gained big support from BBC 6Music and BBC Introducing, with a host of DJs spinning the track and supporting the band.
