What we love most about today’s exclusive on Last Day Deaf, is its unique indie goth idiosyncrasy. The Brighton duo, Fruity Water are gifting us with their latest single, ‘The Grove‘, a mid-tempo tune that could easily serve as the soundtrack for the opening scene, of the next Tim Burton‘s feature film, or maybe the ending sequence? Whatever!
‘The Grove‘ is an atmospheric song with seductive synth work, beautiful vocals and a memorable guitar solo. Fruity Water invite us in this uncommon adventure, in the misty valleys of “Indiegoth-ville”. Will you dare?
Fruity Water are back with a new single, after the success of their debut album Thirst Takes, which was release last year on Big Salad Records. The Grove is their most epic song to date from the Brighton duo, who mix Smalan Odgers’ synthy grooves and arpeggios with Adam Bell’s psychedelic guitar playing.
Their singles Wasted Summer and Rules both received amazing support on 6Music, with plays from Radcliffe & Maconie and Gideon Coe.
The Grove carries a haunting melody and a powerful overdriven guitar solo. It has a gothic indie vibe, reminiscent of elements of New Order, Animal Collective, early Metronomy and Pet Shop Boys. The vocals feature reverbed close harmonies and colourful lyrics about an unknown mystical place.
Fruity Water played a series of exciting gigs in 2018, including a slot at Lunar Festival, and supporting some great acts including AK/DK, Willie J Healy, Sir was, as well as curating an all-dayer gig for the Alternative Great Escape at the Black Dove.
This year, the band are headlining Green Door Store on Friday 5th April and supporting Viewfinder and Treehouse at Pipelines, Brighton on 3rd May. They also have dates across the UK and France being announced soon and their second album is due out this Summer.
The Grove is the first single from Fruity Water’s second album, which has the working title Lime Light, which is due for release this Summer on Big Salad Records.
