WORLD PREMIERE: Hundred Waters – “Cavity” (Official Music Video)
“‘Cavity’ is like watering a field but so much it becomes muddy, or filling a bathtub with so much water it just floods the house,” writes Hundred Waters’ lead singer Nicole Miglis. The song, and its video, are kind of like that quote — familiar but just out of reach.” – NPR Music

“Check out the lovely single, filled with airy vocals, longing violin and unusual percussion.”
Pitchfork included Hundred Waters in their Staff List of the Top 40 Most Anticipated Releases of 2014 and deservedly so. This stuff is completely next-level.
“After two years of touring, Hundred Waters appear to be crafting an album every bit as unpredictable and eye-popping as their 2012 debut, as the new material they’ve recently debuted live features even bolder melodies, more complicated arrangements, and rhythms that seemingly adhere to time signatures that don’t use round numbers.”
“With the release of their 2012 self-titled LP off of Skrillex-owned record label, OWSLA, Hundred Waters, a five-piece band from Gainesville, FL, sew the loose ends between folk, jazz, and electronic instrumentation, melding iridescent imagery with digitally enhanced beats and blips. On songs such as “Visitor,” “Boreal,” and “Thistle,” three of the debut albums most memorable tracks—tales of cherry trees, arid lands, and veiled houses—are harmoniously sung (courtesy of vocalists Nicole Miglis and Sam Moss) atop electro-altered layers of noise and flute notes. And the juxtaposition between songs semi-stripped of enhancements versus songs fully digitized allows for a cushier listening platform (one you can hear yourself on their upcoming U.S. tour in March) that ceases from becoming redundant.
So really, it’s of no surprise that Skrillex (a fan of music outside of derbsterp) signed Hundred Waters as the first official Indie band to OWSLA because variety and talent is a good thing, especially when it comes from a state that looks like a penis.”
