Tusks Return With New Single “Fall In To You”

Out Now via One Little Independent Records

Tusks has returned with her stirring new single ‘Fall In To You’, out today via One Little Independent. With a focus on her layered, soulful vocals and glorious production, the palpitating slow-build of electronics underpin the track’s impactful delivery as it sores into its epic climax.

This sublime loop and raw synth texture emerge to build the colossal composition that boasts this beautiful ambiance. Tusks draw on this powerful surge from the layers of textures and tones all colliding into one another at peak points throughout the journey.

The ethereal, delicate yet incredibly fragile vocal harmonies soar amongst the vast landscape and with the notes, this compelling entity hooks the audience in which they find themselves fixated in the midst of the lyrics. Embracing the range of emotions that Tusks have flawlessly lined this ensemble with.

A truly moving, breathtaking release with this clear production quality that enhances the power of every attribute carefully designed to build this expressive ensemble.
Alongside the recording of her new material, Tusks has been honing her skills as a producer, with sessions at Tottenham studio Ten87 giving her all the creative freedom she needs to expand her ethereal sound palette and broaden her approach. She was also awarded Arts Council England funding in order to aid in the process.
She explains “Fall In To You started by being heavily influenced by the sound of an orchestra tuning up. I’d bought a Moog Grandmother during lockdown and initially was using the song as a learning process for how to patch and play it. After that start, the song just sort of fell together, with the arpeggiator sample and the pushing bassline being the initial structure and all the other sounds and instruments being created around them. It ended up turning it into a really raw and honest love song with the lyrics talking about going through hard patches in a relationship and being confused and pulled in different directions, but then after every hard phase that you experience, you learn more about love and how to love and your love for the other person just continuously deepens and becomes more real.”
Tusks is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist, singer and producer Emily Underhill. Having drawn comparisons to Sigur Ros, Daughter and Explosions In The Sky, Tusks creates music that seamlessly blends atmospheric textures through dark pop melodies to produce her signature melancholic sound, which has seen her gain 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, Wonderland and more.
In 2017, Tusks released her debut album ‘Dissolve’ to critical acclaim. Produced alongside Brett Cox (Jack Garratt, Alt J, Marika Hackman), ‘Dissolve’ saw Tusks effortlessly blend the lines between Electronic, Alternative, Pop and Indie genres on cathartic anthems such as ‘Toronto’ and ‘Last’.
The release of her sophomore album ‘Avalanche’ led Tusks further into the world of Grunge and Shoegaze. Taking inspiration from My Bloody Valentine, Foals and Wolf Alice and tackling subjects such as mental health and sexism in politics, 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 and Berlin’s Berghain Panorama Bar. More recently she’s completed her ‘Revive Live’ tour as well as working on an assortment of collaborations and remixes due for announcement soon.
