TUSKS is the moniker of Emily Underhill, a young artist from London, who walks a fine line between being singer-songwriter and electronic artist. She has recently announced her debut album Dissolve will be released on October 13th via One Little Indian.
Coinciding with this news, TUSKS streams the lead single from her record, a fine example from an album that brings details from Emily’s memory onto record through a world of texture built into expansive soundscapes. Emily describes herself as a very visual person as she explains:
I can have something going in in my life and listen to a song and totally relate that song to me – it’s like that artist is sharing that experience with me and creating a soundtrack to my life.
Drawing inspiration from artists as disparate as Bonobo, Explosions in the Sky, and Foals, Dissolve is the purest distillation of Emily as a person, and it strikes a uniquely human chord through its melodies, which are at once comfortingly familiar and refreshing.
Dissolve is available for preorder now from all digital outlets.
