Tusks releases cinematic new single ‘Toronto’

10 Mar 2017

One Little Indian signee Tusks, aka Emily Underhill, is quickly making a name for herself with her panoramic glacial sound vistas. Latest single ‘Toronto’ (written in the city it’s named after) is the sound of an artist arriving at the beginning of her peak artistic maturity. 

Nestled somewhere between the freeform ultra-slick urban balladeering of James Blake and the frosty and ethereal openness of Sigur Ros, ‘Toronto’ is by turns subtle and deeply emotive, slowly mounting to a breathless climax that highlights Emily’s sheer depth of feeling as an artist. 

Produced by Emily herself, alongside Jack Garratt producer and long-term collaborator Brett Cox, ‘Toronto’ is the first taste of her debut album due later this year. Arriving to a backdrop of keen interest in the media, Emily’s expansive sound has already attracted praise from key tastemakers, with both Lauren Laverne and Annie Mac backing her on the airwaves. Strong support from MixMag, Wonderland and The Line of Best Fit, and brand support from ASOS, further indicates that Tusks’ star is ascending. It’s helped in no small part by her steady conquering of the live circuit, selling out The Waiting Room at the end of last year and netting crucial support slots for Alpines and Submotion Orchestra along the way.

Emily’s ethereal Tusks project gets more riveting with each subsequent release. Occupying a similar space to other pensive and heartfelt alt-pop outpourings like London Grammar and Daughter, Tusks offers us a singular and tender voice. Her songwriting conveys a sophistication that’s seen in very few artists. ’Toronto’ proves she’s constantly evolving and redefining her own artistic boundaries.
