Signed to One Little Independent Records alongside Bjork & Arcade Fire's Sarah Nuefeld, Tusks is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist, singer and producer Emily Underhill. Having drawn comparisons to Sigur Ros, Daughter and Explosions In The Sky, Tusks' creates music that seamlessly blends atmospheric textures through dark pop melodies to produce her signature melancholic sound, which has seen her gain support from the likes of BBC 6 Music's Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac and Huw Stephens, Rolling Stone, Billboard, MixMag, MOJO, Wonderland and more.
In 2017, Tusks released her debut album 'Dissolve' to critical acclaim. Produced alongside Brett Cox (Jack Garratt, Alt J, Marika Hackman), 'Dissolve' saw Tusks effortlessly blend the lines between Electronic, Alternative, Pop and Indie genres on cathartic anthems such as 'Toronto' and 'Last', which have since gone on to top 10 million streams on Spotify and counting.
The release of her sophomore album 'Avalanche' led Tusks further into the world of Grunge and Shoegaze. Taking inspiration from My Bloody Valentine, Foals and Wolf Alice and tackling subjects such as mental health and sexism in politics, the album went on to gain her support from ever widening audiences across the world as well as syncs on hit shows such as Netflix's '13 Reasons Why'.
Having previously supported Khurangbin, Asgeir, Bear's Den and Submotion Orchestra, Tusks embarked on her first European and UK headline tour at the start of 2020, including nights at London's prestigious Village Underground and Berlin's Berghain Panorama Bar. Completing the dates just in time for the Covid 19 pandemic, Tusks has since been writing new music, set for release later this year.
