HUNDRED WATERS RELEASES “WAVE TO ANCHOR” AHEAD OF ALBUM RELEASE
Communicating out next Friday September 15 on Pod via Inertia Music
“A band that truly makes music feel like magic.”
“The connection to Björk is hard to overstate.”
“‘Hundred Waters deal in atmosphere and emotion, with experimental beats
buttressing pop hooks and Nicole Miglis’s breathy, multitracked vocals.”
Paste, The 15 Albums We’re Most Excited About for September
LA-based trio Hundred Waters – comprised of vocalist Nicole Miglis, producer Trayer Tryon and drummer Zach Tetreault shares new song “Wave To Anchor”, the fourth single from their forthcoming album Communicating out next Friday September 15 on Pod via Inertia Music(and longtime label OSWLA in North America).
The buoyant song demonstrates the band’s equal willingness to indulge in explosive pop melodies as well as experimental production techniques, underscoring the tremendous strides in composition, performance, and confidence the band has made since their last album.
The track follows the recently released creepy crawly video for “Fingers” and single “Blanket Me”, which earned a coveted “Best New Track” designation from Pitchfork. This accolade combined with the songs’ reserved and masterful executions illustrate the leap in composition, performance, and confidence the band has undergone in the three years since 2014’s critically lauded The Moon Rang Like a Bell.
Communicating is a grand and ambitious album with an increased focus on songwriting that energises more than ever before. At the same time it’s more confidently experimental, unafraid to spike its pop hooks with noise, or build elaborate, fractal-like patterns out of Miglis’ multi-tracked voice. The album follows the release of their recent Currency EP as well as organising, curating, and performing at their fourth annual FORM Arcosanti festival. “From a broad lens,” Miglis says, “the album is a breakup. It starts with a need for independence and it ends with an ‘all better,’ like we did it: we learned, we loved, we separated, and now it’s time for the next chapter.”
