We’re delighted to be working with Tusks again!

London-based songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Emily Underhill creates atmospheric, arresting alternative pop under the moniker Tusks. Drawing comparisons to Sigur Rós and Explosions In The Sky, Tusks gained 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 and Wonderland with the release of her debut album Dissolve in 2017, produced alongside Brett Cox (Jack Garratt, Alt J, Marika Hackman).

Her second album Avalanche led Tusks further into the world of grunge and shoegaze. Taking inspiration from My Bloody Valentine, Marika Hackman and Wolf Alice, 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, Ásgeir, 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 (which she recorded and released as a live album) and Berlin’s Berghain Panorama Bar. In 2021 she collaborated with CJ Mirra on the soundtrack for feature film A Banquet and has been back writing and recording new music, scheduled for release soon.
