“Spici Water is a Perth band carving a nice niche in the local scene with their fun and tongue-in-cheek songs. …features sizzling riffs, thrumming bass, and a striking drum beat that draws in audiences with its groovy and catchy tune. The snappy and astute lyrics perfectly capture the powerful feeling of drunk confidence when sending that risqué text late at night – often to someone you’re not supposed to.” – Grok Magazine
“The WA good band assembly line is serving us up the next act to watch. Spici Water has the casual coastal feel and rockier moments to win you over.” – Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J Unearthed
“This feels so “now” and like it could easily fit on your playlist alongside current local legends like Ruby Fields, Alex Lahey, Hockey Dad and more. Good signs, take a sip of this lot.” – Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J Unearthed
“when you said, “loving you is easier than me loving me”, I felt that. there’s soul oozing from every single corner of those vocals as they soar above the über solid, über cruisy indie-rock base.” – Abby Butler, Triple J Unearthed
Life can change at the drop of a hat. With the past two years of lockdowns and virtual restrictions starting to fade, AJ of Spici Water found themselves reminiscing about days gone by; nights spent running around Perth’s Paramount Nightclub and midnight adventures to buy pancake mix with their best friends. The passing of time had seen her friends land full time jobs, settle down and even one become a registered nurse.
AJ channeled the memories of each Good Night to inspire the Perth four-piece’s latest indie-rock & coastal-air influenced single. Working collaboratively with instrumental members Amber, Fred & Kyle, Good Night flowed out of the band, with all members resonating with the nostalgic and rose-tinted lyrics penned by AJ. Good Night is an anthem for the young, a “yeah the girls” sing-along and a real-time look at the heartache & challenges young Australians have faced over the past years.
“GOOD NIGHT is a “yeah the girls” anthem about missing going out and hitting the town with your friends. Due to covid, nightlife came to a halt for many months since the nation was in lockdown. Singer AJ loved going out with her friends but by the time lockdown ended they all got full time jobs, one of them becoming a registered nurse and so they didn’t get to go out as much anymore. AJ reminisced on all the good times they had together and wanted to find a way to immortalize their friendship and memories and so GOOD NIGHT came to exist.” – Spici Water
“All of our songs capture life through the eyes of a young person in Australia, talking about love, heartache and celebrating the good times and the bad with drink in hand. A lot of our style and sound is heavily inspired by aus indie rock, indie pop, funk and punk pop.” – Spici Water
With the band working harmoniously to pen the track with relative ease, they found themselves looking for a producer to help bring it to life. Sam Ford (Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, POND, Abbe May) of Tone City Recording Studio was the ideal candidate, blending his experience and songwriting expertise to mold Spici Water’s Good Night into a track that will go on to inspire its namesake – debaucherous nights spent with friends, putting the stress and anxiety of the past years behind them.
“In our process of writing music we find some chords we like and find progressions of verse and chorus and play through them on repeat whilst AJ sings some words or themes that fit the vibe of what we are playing and then it ties up into a song”. Spici Water
Without a doubt, the “feel-good” vibes of Spici Water will continue to grow their following throughout Western Australia & beyond. Their songs of love, heartache, good times & bad will become the soundtrack of “Good Night(s)” across Australia.
