Having been first introduced in 2013 with ever catchy tunes with which to sing along and party – their first album will be a welcome addition to the ‘good times’ playlist as their music is best enjoyed in extended play.

From the forthcoming release – Start Something New.

Their latest release, One More Beer Won’t Hurt, which came out on the 18th and is available on bandcamp, does everything that drew my attention to Black Water County, then a quintet, when initially introduced in 2013.

The first version of the video was without Shan, who was recovering from glandular fever. After she was able to return to the fold, the band did a retake and as always Black Water County make the day seem sunnier…

Black Water County

Black Water County liven the day with pumping beats and strings bouncing around the room and light lyricism, there is nothing to do other than ensure you have a glass of the finest Leixlip has to offer to hand as you spring around the room. As regular readers will know there are a few places in England I find stunningly incongruous to find great music emerge from: Tunbridge Wells being one in particular, another is the Blue Rinse bungalows of Bournemouth, so it is on a couple of levels I really enjoy the quintet.

Whilst the material is light on its feet and the songs straight-forward, the plethora of instruments and lack of complication is an absolute joy. As I have commented before, finding musicians revelling in their enjoyment and transferring that sense of fun to the audience is a testament of ability. If you are after a Hans Reichel you won’t find it here, but if you are after something to sing-a-long to whilst having a great night out in the pub, Black Water County is the place to be.
