Tusks: Tusks [EP]

Tusks [EP]
White Whale Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:

Tusks debut EP is a very mature indie rock offering that balances many different styles over six tracks. Ottawa Canadian music fans will be familiar with Tusks, as members were previously in popular bands Kepler and Wooden Stars. The EP was produced by Jeff McMurrich (Constantines, Hidden Cameras, Bruce Cockburn) and contains memorable choruses that make this a great start to a band that looks like they have what it takes for more exposure a solid debut full length.

Key Track: "Mothers Vs. Sons"

Band With Similar Fire: Low
