Tusks shares new single ‘Body Ache’

Following two revered albums, Dissolve in 2017 and Avalanche in 2019, London-based electronic songwriter and producer Tusks, aka Emily Underhill, has returned with her third. Gold is released on April 12 via One Little Independent Records.

New single ‘Body Ache’ perfectly encapsulates what Gold is; a force of nature, as impactful in its quieter moments as it is when it strikes. Like the people and relationships it represents, it’s complex, with a depth and richness that’s observed within the smallest sonic eccentricity and decision. Like anything, Tusks knows that her artistic strength comes from a careful balance, a push and pull that can be felt tangibly across Gold and its conception.

Tusks tells us; “This track was written really quickly – probably the quickest on the album. I’d just got home from being out with friends, and my partner was later than he said he was going to be coming home, so I started jamming around with a track about him and it ended up being ‘Body Ache’. It just came together super quick which was a nice change from the rest of the album – we even ended up using the demo vocals recorded in my living room. It was nice to allow myself to move into a more upbeat kind of song and let myself be inspired by more RnB – I was listening to a lot of Eliza at the time which I definitely think inspired this one.”
