SOFI TUKKER goes ‘Batshit’ crazy!
For a track that’s clearly influenced by Right Said Fred

Sofi Tukker, the New York-based duo otherwise known as Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern separately, have just launched the audio to the latest single off their debut full-length album ‘Treehouse’, released through Ultra Music.

‘Treehouse’ follows two EPs — ‘Soft Animals’ (2016) and ‘Sofi Tukker’ (2015) — and was announced post the massive success of ‘Best Friend’ featuring Alisa UenoThe Knocks and NERVO.

‘Best Friend’ was the track that played in the background while the iPhoneX Reveal ad played and the song was a hit in no time at all.

It also meant for the duo could continue experimenting with their jungle-pop sound the way they wanted. Called ‘Batshit’, the new single has Tucker channelling his inner Right Said Fred (think ‘I’m Too Sexy’) . Sophie drops in for the chorus and later, a rather repetitive bridge as she lets him take the lead. It’s a mid-tempo sway-and-shake slow-grind.

Does it have the instant charm/verve/appeal/sexiness of ‘Best Friend’, ‘Drinkee’, ‘Baby I’m A Queen’ or ‘Fuck They’. Maybe not. But it hasn’t stopped the maverick duo from going in a different direction and we’re all for that.
