Relaaaaaax – you’re not stuck in an endless iPhone X commercial. This is ‘Best Friends’ by Sofi Tukker featuring NERVO, The Knocks, and Alisa Ueno.
Though if we were stuck in that commercial, it would totally be a feel-good dance party. That’s pretty much the goal for all of Sofi Tukker’s music.
Sofi Tukker’s made of two people, Sophie Hawley-Weld & Tucker Halpern. They met when Sophie was performing with a bossa nova band before Tucker hit the stage to DJ. They earned a Grammy nomination for their debut single ‘Drinkee’ in 2016, but the iPhone commercial put them in everyone’s ears.
Sophie and Tucker say traveling is what most inspires their music because of the good vibes and sense of community it builds. That love of travel and community is reflected in the features on ‘Best Friends’: NERVO is a pair of Australian DJs, The Knocks are an American electronic duo, and Alisa Ueno is a DJ/model/designer from Japan.
This is speculation but since travel inspires Sofi Tukker, they’ll probably have a bunch of new music coming out soon considering their performances have them booked solid through Spring 2018.
We’ll be over here vibing to ‘Best Friends’ in the meantime.
