For all fans of ambient pop, Tusks is one artist that should be on your radar. Otherwise known as London-based artist & producer Emily Underhill, Tusks recently signed to Bjork’s label, One Little Indian, and released her EP ‘False’, a collection of sprawling soundscapes and emotive alt-pop.

Nodding towards artists such as The xx and Daughter but with her own distinctive touch, it follows on from her previous EP 2014 ‘Ink’, which has amassed over a million streams to date.

Take a listen to title-track ‘False’ below:
