Hundred Waters are an indie / electro pop quintet from Gainesville, Florida signed to OWSLA since 2012. Utilizing tasteful restraint, muted drum programming, and a host of ethereal keyboards and wind ensemble scoring, Hundred Waters sets the stage for their silver bullet: singer Nicole Miglis. With a voice that’s thin and attenuated as a wine glass, yet dagger sharp and clear as the night sky, she is the thread that intertwines their sparse and calculated instrumentation, wrapping their sound in a pretty red bow. With melody-harmony work that could melt the coldest of hearts, Miglis will undoubtedly be recruited to join the chamber choir at the pearly gates.
Thus far, Hundred Waters have released 2 excellent LPs, 2012’s self-titled debut and this year’s “The Moon Rang Like A Bell”. They have also released a few remix EPs, with contributions from notable artists such as Star Slinger, Teebs, The Field, and Tim Hecker. To promote their new album, Hundred Waters released a free 6-track bundle available here: https://bundles.bittorrent.com/bundles/tmrlab. What a pleasant bunch.
