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 Emilys sheer depth of feeling as an artist.
Co-produced by Emily and long-term Jack Garratt collaborator, Brett Cox, Toronto is the first taste of her debut album due later this year. With Lauren Laverne and Annie Macs praise on the wireless, brand support from ASOS, and plaudits from key tastemakers like MixMag, Wonderland. and The Line of Best Fit, its little wonder Tusks is quickly gaining a large streaming fan base.
Emilys unique sound gets more refined with each subsequent release. Occupying a similar space to other pensive and heartfelt contemporary pop outpourings like London Grammar and Daughter, Tusks offers us a singular and tender voice. Her songwriting conveys a sophistication thats seen in very few artists. Toronto proves shes constantly evolving and redefining her own artistic boundaries.
After supporting the likes of Dan Croll & Submotion Orchestra, as well as selling our her first ever headline show in November, Tusks is back on the road supporting Alpines on their full European tour.
