Hundred Waters in Gainesville this Saturday

Hundred Waters will be at The Wooly this Saturday. There are still some tickets available for purchase here. They are a Gainesville native band.

This band has received much acclaim for their most recent album, The Moon Rang Like a Bell, including making it onto the Pitchfork’s Top 50 Albums of 2014 as well as their song, “Show Me Love” being featured in a Coca Cola Superbowl commercial. This band has a soothing, melodic sound that sends a variety of messages from that of the importance of compassion, love and understanding to overcoming sadness. Their songs possess a quality of poetic introspection which is enhanced by the lead singer’s, Nicole Miglis, soft, yet enthralling voice. You can watch the powerful ad featuring their song below.

What is so particularly interesting about this band is their history together. Three members of the band, Trayer Tryon, Paul Giese, and Zach Tetreault, started making music together in middle school and continued to work together throughout high school and then moved to Gainesville, Florida, where they lived together and studied at the University of Florida. They eventually met the other members of the band while studying music at UF.

My personal favorite song of theirs is “Down From the Rafters.” My favorite part of the song is:

Make it feel
Like I never met ya”

Nicole Miglis’ voice mixed with the electronic songs in the background transform and blend these lyrics to play with alliteration to make it seem as if the similar sounding words transform as the background music progresses. Their music possesses such poetic qualities that it is easy to get lost in their soothing sound.

You can listen to the song below.
