Psych-rock trio The Good Water are back with their new single Colours, available now on all streaming platforms. The new track from the BBC 6Music-approved Birmingham band buys a ticket straight back to the 60s, with swirling organs and chiming guitars straight out of Woodstock.
“Colours is a trip through a lucid dream,” explains frontman Rob Clements. “With kaleidoscope patterns floating down from the sky, and a perpetual feeling of elation. This song is all about obscuring reality whenever possible, and the inevitability of being humbled by our oneness with the universe.”
Since forming in early 2015, The Good Water have been busy. The boys quickly picked up radio support from BBC Introducing and Brum Radio, gained new fans at raucous shows around the Midlands and blew away audiences supporting Super Furry Animals, Mercury Rev 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 indie blogs and magazines.
Their two 2017 singles See Your Lightand Mansaid gained tastemaker approval from indie radio royalty Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and Mary-Anne Hobbes, and in late 2018 they completed a sold-out UK tour with Canadian rockers The Sheepdogs and are regulars on the thriving Midlands Indie scene.
