Why you should listen

Sofi Tukker's very existence happened haphazardly, after Sophie Hawley-Weld met Tucker Halpern during an art show at Brown University, where they both happened to be performing. It only took a couple of months before the NYC-based duo penned their viral track, "Drinkee," which has since been featured in an Apple Watch Ad, racked up more than 20 million Spotify streams and received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. The song was the first they ever wrote, and it became the backbone of their EP, Soft Animals. Their next collection of songs will combine a guitar-led edge with the playfulness and myriad of international influences.
