Sofi Tukker

Sofi Tukker are Sophie and Tucker.
Extended version is Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern.
They are a couple of very talented artists based in New York. Tucker is originally from Boston, and Sophie was born in Germany she spent a few years in rural Canada, and then studied in Italy and Brazil. They met at an art gallery while attending Brown University, and the rest is history as they say.

So shall we get to the music?  Such amazing beautiful music it is too.

First up this song “Drinkee”, which is from the Soft Animals EP, was nominated for a 2017 Grammy for Best Dance Recording.
“Drinkee” is adapted from a poem written by the Brazilian poet, Chacal, sung sensually amidst cowbells, bongos, electric guitars and deep driving bass.
That said, this is a refreshing breath of fresh air through the musical hinterland.

Another great track from the EP, I’m just lovin’ it. So, oh so, cool. Awooo Awooo.
Swans, chicks, peacocks, it’s all for the birds. But really those piercing blue eyes.

I have to say that one of my favorite tracks from the “Soft Animals” EP is this catchy number.
It is another beautiful track that has so much going for it.
Matadora

Matadora is the second single off their debut EP “Soft Animals”

So they are all great songs, let’s see how they do live. Here Sofi Tukker perform Drinkee in live concert for KCRW Summer Nights Concert Series at One Colorado in Pasadena, California on 06/04/2016. And it is delicious. Love love love it.

Live performance at ‘School Night!’ Bardot, Los Angeles. With the wonderful Betta Lemme.
I love to have the comparison between the live and the “Official Video” performance.
This is superb, if you have the chance to see them live, don’t miss it.
