The Good Water: Mansaid (single) review

It’s raw, it’s raucous,  it’s meaty, and it’s real rock.

Birmingham-based garage-psych-rockers The Good Water have release their new single ‘Mansaid’ this week.

Laden with a Black Keys-inspired meaty riff this is one rocky number that sets the heart beating, the feet tapping and the head banging.

But there is also a 60s groovy vibe.

The psychedelic breakdown in the middle reminds us of Gruff Rhys and SFA, blended with some early Syd Barratt-era Pink Floyd.

Since forming in early 2015, The Good Water have been busy.

TGW have quickly picked up loyal support from Brum Radio with their drone-rock debut single ‘Everything Is’.

They have gained new fans at raucous shows around the Midlands and blew away audiences supporting Mercury Rev, Super Furry Animals and Bill Ryder-Jones at Lunar Festival.

The duo’s brand of psychedelic rock grooves, obscure lyrics and nimble riffs is streamlined into tight garage-pop frameworks – frankly, it’s superb.

The Good Water will be playing live dates in support of the new single this Spring.
