Illuminati Hotties – “Pool Hopping”

Illuminati Hotties – “Pool Hopping”

We’ve come a long way from Illuminati Hotties being the best band almost no one saw at SXSW 2018. Sarah Tudzin’s breezy, bright, and always surprising indie-pop project has experienced a justifiably exciting rise over the past couple years between the release of her debut album Kiss Yr Frenemies and last year’s Free I.H.: This Is Not The One You’ve Been Waiting For, a mixtape recorded as a fuck-you to her old label.

Now she’s ready to release her proper sophomore album, which was preceded by the best songs of the week-worthy single “MMMOOOAAAAAYAYA” a couple months ago. The album’s called Let Me Do One More and it’s out in October. Today, we’re getting the summer-ready anthem “Pool Hopping,” which is filled with warm harmonies and twitchy guitars. So goes the jump-around chorus: “Pool hopping/ Window shopping/ Night vision/ Indecision/ Pool hopping/ Window shopping/ Stealth makeout/ Breakfast takeout.” Check it out below.
