Multi-instrumentalist band member, Trayer Tryon has said that the name Hundred Waters is an ode to European painter, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, whose life and works greatly affected the way the group approaches music. Vocalist Nicole Miglis is heavily informed by pastoral England in terms of harmony and language, which the remaining band members infuse with intricate electronic instrumentation and jazz-like improvisations. Overall, the group's musical influences range widely from 60's British art-rock, to Norwegian jazz group, Jaga Jazzist and pianist, Arthur Rubinstein.Hundred Waters own music has been compared to artists including: Björk, Four Tet, Braids, Animal Collective, and Dirty Projectors.
