Borne from electronic beginnings, Tusks’ debut album ‘Dissolve’ saw cathartic anthems like ‘Last’ and ‘Toronto’ (a track now with over 4m Spotify streams and counting) draw comparisons to Explosions In The Sky, Sigur Ros, Daughter and Cinematic Orchestra, championed by BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and Radio 1’s Annie Mac, MixMag, DIY, LOBF, MOJO, 405, Wonderland and more.
In 2019, Underhill’s second album ‘Avalanche’ came with a greater wealth of influences “I got really into My Bloody Valentine, Foals, Marika Hackman, Wolf Alice and a lot of female-led grungy guitar music,” she says, with the album going on to gain support from Rolling Stone, Billboard, Complex, Radio X and gain syncs across numerous TV shows, including Netflix’s hit series ’13 Reasons Why’. In the build up to Avalanche’s release, Tusks supported Bear’s Den on their UK & European tour including two dates at the 2k capacity; London’s Shepherds Bush Empire before embarking on her own debut headline tour across the UK and Europe, including a number of sold out shows and a night at London’s prestigious Village Underground.
From that tour comes Tusks’ next release ‘Live At Village Underground’, released on 25th September 2020 on One Little Independent Records.
