The potency of a muted style on display in Hundred Waters’ show at the Sinclair
The Florida four-piece Hundred Waters' approach to making music is reminiscent of lacework: The skeletal piano lines of lead singer Nicole Miglis thread through the drones and pulses provided by the guitars and electronics of Trayer Tryon and Paul Giese, while drummer Zach Tetreault anchors the grace. Miglis's vocals float within this landscape, murmuring introspective lyrics. The end result has a staggering amount of beauty, which the band's live presentation on Saturday at The Sinclair only intensified.
