Biography

Underwaters is a project born in 2010, when the Parisian Nathalie Cahuzac (vocals, lyrics, song writing) and Jorge Viñals, from Madrid (production, song writing, sound) met. As they complemented each other, collaborating came naturally.

In a continuous evolving process, the band’s sound finds its identity through the uncommon and melancholic vocals of Nathalie surrounded by Jorge’s hypnotic and forceful beats and synths.

The band’s personality is hard to describe through others, however artists like Boards of Canada, Chromatics, HVOB, Trust, Bat for Lashes or even Portishead could be mentioned. 

At the moment, after 3 EPs, they just released their first LP, “Youth”. An album with a strong identity, a mixture of genres such as synth, tropical, tribal, idm, bass or dreamy. Summer colors and nostalgia stand out, with tropical and occult textures, evoking the adolescence’s innocence and its contradictions. 

Underwaters is currently based both in Paris and Barcelona, but open to play anywhere. They had a show in New York's PIANOS and love to move and know new bands and people.
