Details on Hundred Waters‘ upcoming album finally emerged following last week’s release of “Xtalk.” The delay was due to the band’s deliberation over their album name. They decided collectively that The Moon Rang Like a Bell would be a fitting title for all the strenuous work that’s gone into their sophomore album.
It’s unbelievable that it’s been over two years since the last album, but everything that’s out so far has been characteristic of all that we’ve come to know from Hundred Waters. But I can’t shake the feeling that a conventional single might not even exist on this album, and that it’s more of an all-inclusive track list that you must fully buy into to truly be invested. Of course, that doesn’t detract from the quality of “Xtalk,” which gives us a glimpse of what to expect going forward.
