Welsh trio Tusk have been together since 2011, coming together as like minded musicians in their hometown of Swansea. Citing a weighty list of influences including Dinosaur Jr, The Pixies, The Cure, Smashing Pumpkins, and Pavement, they combine to deliver a unique alt rock sound through their music with a little indie fuzz.
Pull it Off is the band’s latest single. It doesn’t shy away from prominent guitar and bass, and it shouldn’t need to when trying to capture live sounds in recorded format. Tusk manage this with layered sounds melding with crashing drums and a little reverb all add to bold, accessible alt rock sounds. You could imagine this coming alive and being delivered with zeal on stage.
If that’s not enough, there’s a B-side available with Candle – extra Tusk following the guitar and bass dominance from Pull it Off, just a more chilled and slightly grittier way.
