Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Emily Underhill brings her expansive sonic visions to life under the moniker Tusks. Swimming in dark, elegant mixes of shoegaze-styled soul, Tusks will soon release its most complete statement to date in the form of the Dissolve LP out October 13th via One Little Indian.
The album’s latest single, “Last,” finds Underhill telling off someone close to her who had had it coming for a while, and the accompanying layers of echoing guitars and thundering percussion hammers it all home her voice dances above the fray.
“I’m a very visual person,” shares Underhill in a statement on Dissolve. “I love being outdoors and surrounded by nature. I grew up by the sea and I’ve always tried to spend as much time outside and travel as much as possible – I think perhaps subconsciously that all influences how cinematic some of my music can be and why I love creating the artwork to go with it”
