Indie Spotlight Decade Rewind: Sofi Tukker

Posted in News on November 12, 2020

After only a few months of collaborating and drawing inspiration from the throbbing house beats of the ‘90s, Sofi Tukker (a dance duo composed of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern) wrote and released the 2016 viral hit, “Drinkee.” The song earned a GRAMMY nomination and placement in an Apple Watch commercial, further propelling its success before the pair landed on the BMI stage (and in the Indie Spotlight!) at Lollapalooza in 2017. Since that performance, they have released a steady string of singles, dropped a GRAMMY-nominated album, and earned features on soundtracks to films like Birds of Prey and To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. ST’s song with Nervo and The Knocks, “Best Friend,” cracked the Billboard Hot 100, and their work has found international success in markets across Belgium, the Netherlands, France, and Canada. This year alone, they have released plenty of music to keep their fans satiated during quarantine, including tracks like “Spa,” “Emergency,” “House Arrest,” and “Fashion Model Art,” to name a few.
