illuminati hotties is the mission of writer and producer Sarah Tudzin. “u v v p” (feat. Buck Meek) is the third monitor to be launched off Let Me Do One Extra.

“The songs inform a narrative of my gremlin ass operating round L.A., sneaking into swimming pools at evening, messing up and beginning over, begging for consideration for one second longer and asking the viewers to let me do yet another,” Tudzin says.
Let Me Do One Extra is a sonic left flip from illuminati hotties’ final grungier launch, Free I.H: This Is Not The One You’ve Been Waiting For. Because the report’s title suggests, the gathering wasn’t initially speculated to be launched after their debut, Kiss Yr Frenemies, in 2018. Nevertheless, problems with their label reportedly modified their plans.
“Actually, bands are usually typecast with the primary report or the primary two information they make, and the general public expects a sure sound from them,” Tudzin says. “However while you’re a rapper or producer or DJ, there are not any guidelines, and you may put no matter you need into a set of works or drop unfinished songs onto a mixtape. And that’s high-quality—their followers are into that. With rock bands, I don’t know why, however they’re anticipated to current a completely realized masterwork. Rappers are too, however they simply make a lot extra stuff, and while you’re within the pop world, each single day you’re doing a number of classes to put in writing extra materials. And you find yourself with issues that aren’t a full-blown monitor that might find yourself on an LP however are fairly cool, and also you need to present to individuals.
“I believe what I’ll hopefully be taught from the response [from Free I.H: This Is Not The One You’ve Been Waiting For] is that I really feel actually fortunate to place illuminati hotties in a means the place we are able to sorta do something,” she continues. “I don’t assume we’ve been boxed into one specific model of music, and, particularly after this comes out, there’s simply so many choices, which is enjoyable.
She additionally spoke about the way forward for illuminati hotties’ sound.
“I don’t at all times need to make guitar music, and I don’t at all times need to make indie guitar music,” Tudzin says. “This has allowed me to stretch in so some ways, and if it nonetheless feels genuine and real to all people who listens to it, then it’ll open up extra doorways for what we are able to do musically. However I’ve by no means felt boxed into a method. I don’t take into consideration music like that when it’s stuff that I’m making.”
