Sofi Tukker have announced they will release the R.I.P. Shame, Pt. 1 EP on September 20th. This is the follow up to their GRAMMY nominated debut album Treehouse. The group has also shared a new single and video from the EP for “Swing”, a crowd favorite at their live shows. A dramatic widescreen string arrangement befitting of Wagner starts off “Swing” and gives way to a relentless rhythm that is almost martial at times as the duo trades verses in Brazilian Portuguese adapted from a poem by their longtime collaborator Chacal. The group worked with director Charles Todd of Scheme Engine, who previously directed “Fantasy” and has collaborated with Jay-Z, Troye Sivan and Harry Styles, to bring the epic ”Swing” to life.
The group invites you deeper into their fantastical world as they embody warriors battling each other in a mountaintop arena, sharpening their super-natural powers with an incantation from a mystical book. "Swing" was shot on location at Centro Ceremonial Otomí in Temoaya. Nestled in the picturesque mountains of Toluca, Mexico, the ceremonial square was erected in 1980 as a tribute to the Otomi people and culture by then governor of Mexico, Jorge Jiménez Cantú.
