SOFI TUKKER’s success was anything but planned. The band’s very existence happened haphazardly after Sophie Hawley-Weld met Tucker Halpern at an art show at Brown University, where they both happened to be performing. It only took a couple of months until the NYC-based duo penned their viral track “Drinkee,” which has since been featured in an Apple Watch Ad, racked up over 20 million Spotify streams, and received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. The song was the first they ever wrote, and became the backbone of their wildly successful EP, Soft Animals.
