Undertow Orchestra is made up of four of today's most under the radar yet prolific singer-songwriters: David Bazan of Pedro The Lion and Headphones, Vic Chestnutt, Mark Eitzel of American Music Club, and Will Johnson of Centro-matic. Johnson's Centro-matic band mate Scott Danbom joined the Orchestra on piano and violin.

They stopped by The Current for a performance and interview with Steve Seel before their Feb. 19 show at First Avenue.

Songs performed:

"Closing Down My House" featuring Will Johnson

"Bands With Managers" featuring David Bazan

"The Pool" featuring Vic Chestnut

Web only: "My Pet Rat, St. Michael" featuring Mark Eitzel
