The music of Gainsville, Florida-based five-piece Hundred Waters is a bouyant and kaleidoscopic exploration of sound. This isn't exactly what you'd expect from a band who released their self-titled debut under Skrillex's OWSLA label. Even though they're not his normal musical venture, we totally understand what he sees in this group. They have a knack for injecting their whimsical songs with robust sonic suggestion. For example, "Boreal" emits elements of childlike fantasy with Nicole Miglis's cooling vocal pulse and a constantly evolving, twinkling synth.
The group assembled to cast a sonic spell on those who were lucky enough to be present at the Stereogum party at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel down in Austin. We invite you to this very musical bewitching below.
