Hailing from New York, Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern combined their musical efforts a few years back to make Sofi Tukker. In a few short years they have earned a Grammy nomination, had their music featured in EA Sports’ Fifa ’17 and had their song “Best Friend” featured in the Apple launch of the iPhone X. Everything seems to be coming up roses for them.
In 2016 they released an EP called Soft Animals. The song “Drinkee”, which is adapted from a poem written by Brazilian Chacal, earned them a 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. April 2018 saw the release of their first full length album, Treehouse. They are earning attention for their infectious pop sound which is heavy on the Brazilian influences.
