Tami Neilson Drops Video For 'Ten Tonne Truck'

C.C. / Thursday 14th November, 2019 1:00PM

Tami Neilson has dropped a whopper of a video for 'Ten Tonne Truck', the Canadian-born Tāmaki Makaurau-based artist's third single from her forthcoming album CHICKABOOM!, releasing in February. Light hearted in spirit but packing considerable thematic heft, the Todd Neilson (Valiant Made)-directed clip stars the songwriter in two roles: a carefree sequinned Tami Neilson riding on the back of a big rig, dragged along by a hard-working Tami Neilson – a struggling figure recalling the ancient Greek myth of Sisyphus, who was doomed to push a rock uphill for all eternity. Neilson opened up to Wide Open Country about her expose of showbiz's "daily grind" in 'Ten Tonne Truck', out via streaming services this Friday...

"There's the 'glamorous' persona that the public sees: the made-up, beehived and sequined, Instagram-worthy artist who is always smiling and perceived as successful. Then there's the reality behind all the smoke and mirrors, the relentless grind, pulling that whole thing on your back with blood, sweat and tears, head down as you try to focus on putting one foot in front of the other."

'CHICKABOOM!' releases on Friday 14th February 2020 via Outside Music / Neilson Records.
