Tusks announces headline Dublin show at Whelan’s.

Tusks presents the introspective indie electronica of London-based English singer/songwriter/producer Emily Underhill. Underhill debuted her plaintive sound and off-kilter detailing on the self-made, self-released Snow EP in February 2012 using her own name. After signing with the storied indie label One Little Indian and adopting the pseudonym, she made her Tusks debut with the four-track False EP in 2016. A year later, One Little Indian released her first long-player, an atmospheric rumination on love and loss titled Dissolve.

It’s fitting that Avalanche, is threaded with uplifting lyrics about knowing yourself and overcoming obstacles. After all, the road to this record was filled with adversity for the acclaimed Londoner, who creates atmospheric, arresting indie electronica under the name Tusks. In January 2018, she suffered a serious elbow break; “I was distraught,” she recalls. “I had to prepare for the possibility I might not be able to play guitar or piano properly again.” 12 months and two operations later, though, comes Avalanche – an album that overspills with grit and glacial beauty.

Beloved by Lauren Laverne, Annie Mac, Wonderland, MixMag, The Line of Best Fit, DIY and many more, the musician has big plans for 2019 following Avalanche’s release. After entertaining 2000-strong rooms on a 2017 tour with renowned Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir in support of her debut album Dissolve, plans are afoot to bring Tusks' powerful live show and new album to more stages this year.
