Tusk are a band based in Newcastle.
After two independently released singles, the band are preparing for the release of their new EP, 'Interrobang', which will be available through Tiny Lights Recordings in the spring.
Tusk have had numerous plays on local and national BBC radio stations, as well as being featured in a wide range of local press and online music journals. In terms of sound, the band have been compared to Foals, Minus The Bear, Battles and Wild Beasts. Their songs have been described as having "math-rock guitars", "choppy rhythm" and "prolonged instrumental sections".
Some nice people have said these nice things about Tusk:
"Like Muse with all of their ridiculous bombast removed; or Field Music with catchier riffs; or Foals with better vocals."
- The Crack Magazine
“Just awesome, beautifully constructed melodic songs.”
- Tiny Lights Recordings
"It’s an absolute beauty. There’s hints of Foals and Wild Beasts in the melodic melodrama of the songs. The single is rapidly becoming one of my favourites of 2012, so I’m really excited to hear what they come up with in the future."
- Drowned In Sound (on Boy Bruce, The Mighty Atom)
