Illuminati Hotties’ ‘Truck’ Is The Perfect Soundtrack For A Summer Drive

Illuminati Hotties has been red-hot behind the scenes, lending production to Boygenius’ The Record and opening for a portion of Boygenius’ current North American tour. But Sarah Tuzdin’s brainchild is about to reclaim the spotlight. A press release promises that their follow-up to their 2021 album Let Me Do One More “is due imminently.” The forthcoming LP has been preceded by a newly released single, “Truck.”

The acoustic-based, dreamy track exemplifies an uninhibited feeling otherwise known as summer vibes. Tuzdin tugs at nostalgia, singing, “You grew up way too fast / Took your corncob act to the city / Thought there could be something more / Turns out Hollywood’s just as boring / Sticking to the first game plan.”

In a statement, Tuzdin said, “If mortality is a jolting, jagged highway exit, then heaven is a truck as it rumbles through the unknown. ‘Truck’ is a gentle affirmation that the dream can change at no deficit of dignity. For Tim.”

She also wrote on Instagram, “Take a long drive and stream the heck outta this lil cruiser!”
