Tusks, aka Emily Underhill, had this to say about the video for for the title track from her debut album Dissolve, due out on September 13 via One Little Indian;
“As soon as I wrote Dissolve, I had a really strong vision for the video of two people fighting on a dimly lit London street at night. We were so lucky with the amazing actors and production team that brought it to life and added in the ideas of shooting the whole thing in reverse in one shot with the changing lights – it adds such a dreamy quality to it,” Underhill said in a statement.
Dissolve follows her Ink and False EPs. She worked alongside long-time producer Brett Cox on the album.
“I’m a very visual person, I love being outdoors and surrounded by nature. I grew up by the sea and I’ve always tried to spend as much time outside and travel as much as possible – I think perhaps subconsciously that all influences how cinematic some of my music can be and why I love creating the artwork to go with it,” she said.
“I can have something going in in my life and listen to a song and totally relate that song to me – it’s like that artist is sharing that experience with me and creating a soundtrack to my life. I take a lot of inspiration from more cinematic music in the creation and production of my music and maybe that’s why that idea sits with me more – it creates a closer connection between the listener and the record,” Underhill added.
Catch Tusks on the following dates;
09 September, OnBlackheath Festival, London
15 September, Kamio at Red Gallery, London
