Christine Nguyen’s Stranded is this week’s Sound of the Underground

Ethereal yet haunting, stunning single Stranded from the talented Christine Nguyen is this week’s Sound of the Underground track.

Stranded is a dark and lonely track, contrasted perfectly by Christine’s pure toned vocals and some whimsical synths. A blend between Lo-Fi, R&B and Alt-Pop Christine is an intriguing songwriting talent hailing from Portland.

Christine’s songwriting style has a powerful, emotive air to it. A talented story teller who paints a picture of heartbreak and longing. Her heavenly harmonies sit over a rhythmic beat to create a picture perfect Alt-Pop single.

Reminiscent of Bedroom-Pop stars such as Clairo, Christine brings a dark edge and emotive flare to the genre.

We had a quick chat with Christine to find out a little more about Stranded.

Tell us a little more about yourself, how did you get started in music?

“I’m a singer-songwriter from Portland, OR! As an artist I write about past experiences and stories that resonate with me. I like to take listeners through a journey from start to finish with all my music.

I’ve been singing and writing songs my whole life but i got into producing music after I took a beats class in high school. I started networking with other producers and artists and have found people to work with and hone my sound with.”

What does latest single from yourself ‘Stranded’ mean to you?

“Stranded is about betrayal. The song describes my frustration with wanting closure and it is a letter to a person who I thought would always be there but had ulterior motives. The process of writing “Stranded” started happening after I got the beat. As I listened to it I knew I wanted to write about a previous heartbreak. When I know what I want to write about, the words just start flowing. I wrote about exactly how I felt.”
