Tusks - Dissolve

Info: On our latest International VidList which brings you the best independent music videos from outside of Ireland, we kick off with London solo act Tusks, the moniker of dream-pop artist Emily Underhill. 'Dissolve' is the title-track from her debut album which will be released on the 13th of October on the One Little Indian label. 

We instantly delighted in both the song and video for 'Walkaway' (below) from Toronto indie-pop troupe Weaves, an injection of happiness coupled with contemplative tones for the win. The single is just released today and is taken from their forthcoming album Wide Open which drops on the 6th of October.

Our next vid is wonderful and pleasantly bizarre and it comes from Philadelphia's Japanese Breakfast (Michelle Zauner) via the single 'Road Head'. The video has an 80's retro horror feel, but with a seemingly willing and collaborative victim. It comes from Zauner's sophomore album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, which was released just last month, and is getting plenty of headphone play from us over the last few weeks, also check out previous single / video 'Machinist' if you like what you're hearing.

We wrap up with one of our favourite Australian artists, the amazing Gordi, all of whom's single releases in the lead up to the launch of her debut album Reservoir, which is out this Friday, 25th of August, have turned us upside down inside. 'Bitter End' caps a wonderful lead up to the debut LP, wrought with powerful emotion and one of the most unique voices in contemporary indie-folk, we're just in love with her sound, simple as that.
