For our next Music City Sessions video, we are stoked to bring the powerhouse-sounds of The Undercurrent performing their new single, “Washed Away”. Music City was the first San Francisco rehearsal studio Wendy ever practiced in, back in 2011 when it was Plug and Play Studios. The Undercurrent has since held many of their practices at Music City, prepping for various shows, music videos, and recording sessions.
The Undercurrent is the San Francisco-based indie duo of Wendy Chuah and Paul Zielinski. The two first met in 2015, and small talk quickly turned into meaningful songwriting. With Wendy as an expressive vocalist and lyricist, and Paul as an experienced producer and multi-instrumentalist, they have been able to play off each other’s artistic strengths and sensibilities to create a soulful, indie pop sound with a distinctive California vibe. As their name suggests, despite their often contrary musical tastes, an underlying force allows the duo to meet in the in-between — combining driving beats, layered guitar riffs, memorable melodies, and tying it all together with heartfelt lyrics.
The duo released their first single and music video for Waves in early 2017, and follow up tracks Who’s To Blame and On My Mind soon after. They are currently recording their debut EP and have since assembled a live band, playing shows around the Bay Area and quickly building up a loyal local following.
