New York-based duo Sofi Tukker craft throbbing '90s house-inspired jungle pop that resulted in a Grammy nomination before they even released a full-length album.
The pair -- Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern -- met in Providence, Rhode Island while attending Brown University. Soon after, the solo artists joined forces and composed their first song, "Drinkee," which would become an international hit. Streamed over 30 million times and charting in multiple countries, "Drinkee" went on to receive a Grammy nomination in 2017. The track featured lyrics adapted from a Brazilian poem and was sung in Portuguese (which Hawley-Weld studied in college), adding to its global appeal. "Drinkee" appeared on the pair's 2016 debut EP, Soft Animals. The following year, the propulsive single "Fuck They" arrived. ~ Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi
