SOFI TUKKER RETURNS WITH NEW ISLAND DANCE POP 'ENERGIA'

 

SOFI TUKKER have shared a genre-defying new single "Energia." The track harkens back to their breakthrough “Drinkee" with Brazilian Portuguese lyricism, an ecstatic rhythm, and the Andean stringed instrument charango. The words are an invocation of joy and a plea to the universe, "Give me energy!" The group says, "With Energia, we have gone back to our roots as lovers of the Brazilian language. This song, like “Drinkee” and “Matadora”, is a collaboration with the Brazilian poet, Chacal. We hope you love it as much as we loved making it!"

 

Their recent single 'Best Friend' is soundtracking the iPhone X TV ads around the world, topping the iTunes dance chart and rapidly climbing the US pop radio charts. They recently released a video for the song that takes the track's island flair directly to the island, Ibiza that is. Directed by Mac Boucher (Grimes, Yukon Blonde, Close Talker), the clip shows SOFI TUKKER and featured artists NERVO, The Knocks, and Alisa Ueno getting rowdy around town.

 

SOFI TUKKER are currently on a largely sold-out North American tour with ODESZA, which culminates in a hometown show on December 15th at NYC’s Barclays Center. The duo recently announced a European headline tour for January & February 2018, as well as Estéreo Picnic Colombia and Lollapalooza Brazil festival dates.
