    label: k7

    LA-based trio Hundred Waters - comprised of vocalist Nicole Miglis, producer Trayer Tryon and drummer Zach Tetreault - release their long awaited full lengt. The band shared 'Blanket Me' to widespread acclaim including a Pitchfork 'Best New Track', and have followed up with a new track and video for 'Fingers'. The hushed tones and raw emotional prowess of the song catches a fitting visual treatment from director Allie Avital in which the vulnerability of Miglis’s lyrics manifest as a small army of over 12,000 live insects that crawl around and on top of her. Communicating is a grand and ambitious album with an increased focus on composition that energises more than ever before. At the same time it’s more confidently experimental, unafraid to spike its pop hooks with noise, or build elaborate, fractal-like patterns out of Miglis’s multitracked voice. The album follows the release of their recent Currency EP as well as the continuing success of FORM Arcosanti, the festival they founded themselves and curate (headliners this year included James Blake, Solange, Father John Misty and Future Islands). “From a broad lens,” Miglis says, “the album is a breakup. It starts with a need for independence and it ends with an ‘all better,’ like we did it: we learned, we loved, we separated, and now it’s time for the next chapter.” TRACKLISTING: 1. Particle 2.
