The Grammy-nominated duo Sofi Tukker have specific criteria for what makes a good song: if it’s good, it’ll make them dance. Their song Drinkee from 2016 become a viral sensation and they started playing at major festivals. The pop New York duo will bring their crazy and colourful show to Roxy, Prague for the first time.
Sofi Tukker’s success was anything but planned. The band’s very existence happened haphazardly after Sophie Hawley-Weld met Tucker Halpern during an art show at Brown University, where they both happened to be performing. It only took a couple of months before the NYC-based duo penned their viral track Drinkee, which has since been featured in an Apple Watch Ad, racked up over 55 million Spotify streams, and received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. The song was the first they ever wrote and Tucker ads: “It wasn’t really until the Apple commercial that people were like, ‘Oh, you’re in a band.'”
