Hundredth Premiere New Song “Iridescent”
via Alternative Press
Final Song in 2019 Singles Series
Hundredth have been staying busy with their 2019 singles series and today the band have teamed with Alternative Press to premiere the final installment. “Iridescent” is a driving cut of dreampop that follows “Whatever,” “Cauterize,” and “Leave Yourself” (which earned praise from Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, FLOOD, Uproxx, and more). This year’s singles have showcased Hundredth‘s continued sonic growth, and “Iridescent” highlights the band’s ability to combine shimmering guitars and arena-ready drums into a sound that’s as lush and blissed-out as is it hooky and accessible. Alternative Press praised the band’s new direction saying, “Hundredth…are mining a field where the perception of alt-rock and pop are blurred significantly.”

Hundredth‘s singles series is the first taste of brand new music from the band since their 2017 full-length, RARE, which propelled them into a bold new direction. RARE was a sonic rebirth that allowed Hundredth to move beyond their roots in aggressive music and evolve into a kind of vibrant shoegaze and driving alternative that felt both organic and daring all at once–exciting longtime fans and critics alike, and even landing on Stereogum’s Best Albums of 2017.
With this year’s singles Hundredth continue to push themselves forward and revel in melody like never before–effortlessly conjuring the grandeur of classic post-punk and new wave (New Order, The Cure, The Chameleons) and the effervescence of modern synth-pop and dream-pop (Future Islands, Beach House). While “Iridescent” might be the last new Hundredth single for 2019 but the band are gearing up for a busy 2020 with more activity on the way, stay tuned for details.
