WATCH: Hundred Waters ‘Boreal’ (Official Video)
If you’ve got a weak stomach, the video for ‘Boreal’ might not be your cup of tea. It features some slimey slugs and fairly garish costumes.
However, if you stick with it, you’ll find it totally worthwhile – if for nothing but the mermaids.
The aural delights of HUNDRED WATERS, on the contrary, go from sweet to sweeter. The vocals are divine and stratospheric, and the synths and keys ethereal and graceful.
There’s a strong theme of nature throughout, and things do get ugly when a scantily-clad child brandishes a knife at a sheepskinned monster in the bush.
When the adventure goes under the sea, it’s much more pleasant viewing, and you might find yourself reminded of the fish tank scene in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet.
