Hundred Waters At Make Music Pasadena, Saturday June 6th 2015 Review

Hundred Waters

Hundred Waters was an electronic band, and they looked so experimented and so young at the same time that it was almost ridiculous! In particular, frontgirl Nicole Miglis looked like a teenager, pale and frail, singing with this lush whisper going to some high operatic and vulnerable croon. She immediately made me think about a cross between Bjork and Grimes, which should not be a bad thing at all, bringing mystery and intensity in her performance with her see-through black top and some silver glitter she had spread on her hands.

Their performance was very dreamy, very slow at first, installing a very ethereal and aching ambiance, sometimes going to more beats, but staying on the dark side of an electronic dance. There was a slight touch of exotica at times and it was only toward the end that they accelerated to got to a full EDM spirit.

Miglis was often kneeling down in front of the synth as she was surrounded by Trayer Tryon, Paul Giese, and Zach Tetreault on more synths, a rare guitar and some very soft drums. Being not a fan of a certain type of electronic you see pullulating at festivals in these days, all I can say is that they didn’t sound like a stupid EDM party, and it’s not because Skrillex signed them on his OWSLA label for their last album or because they are remixed by Araab Muzik, Star Slinger, and TokiMonsta, that they think about turning their songs into Hard festival dance anthems, not at all, their performance was empowering, very intense at time and they overall stayed on a very quiet and organic side of their eerie soundscapes, despite all this electronic business.

A few pictures here.
