Hundred Waters at the Media Club Wednesday night.
The Florida quartet is on tour for its latest album, The Moon Rang Like a Bell. Portland, Oregon’s Pure Bathing Culture opened the show.
The “electronically inclined art-pop quartet” is comprised of Nicole Miglis, Trayer Tryon, Paul Giese, and Zach Tetreault. According to the press release, while living together in Gainesville, “the four found themselves inclined to collaboration while living under one roof, sharing a communal mentality that yielded a beautiful blend of musical contradictions: mournful yet colourful, introverted yet aware. Their self- titled debut soon attracted the most unlikely of allies, Skrillex, who signed the band to his OWSLA label that same year and gave the album a full-scale release, leading to worldwide touring with such diverse acts as The xx, Alt-J, Grimes and Julia Holter amid accolades from the likes of New York Times and Pitchfork.
