“Wilderness”, is the latest album of Hundreds. Since their debut in 2010 the sibling duo's music has developed to become more open, though without sacrificing its mystery.
Two years after the release of their second album “Aftermath” Eva and Philipp Milner have become bolder and more adventuresome. They carefully arrange electronic beats strikingly encounter Evas melancholic texts, and as listeners we experience their music as clear and powerful while at the same time a dark longing dominates, though it is carried by a sense of euphoria and a pure desire for the music.
In the new album a large, extraordinary, and forceful piece of work was created that intonates a part of human history by delving deep into a world of electronic tones. In doing so Hundreds have broken the structures of conventional pop music and replaced them with escalating arrangements and unconventional beats. Nevertheless, this record still finds room for the meticulous pop sound of their roots. Since their debut the Hamburg duo have played sold-out tours across Europe. Recently supporting ALT-J during their German tour, they have also travelled to CMJ Festival in New York, and played at MUSEXPO 2014 in Los Angeles.
The latest deals with the invasion of mankind into untouched nature. Hundreds have with this album written a touching and sonically immense history of culture in which it becomes clear that mankind is the architect of his own demise, and will in the end destroy himself.
