Sofi Tukker’s New Mixtape Is What Your Ears Need Right Now

'Animal Talk Vol. 1' is nothing if not diverse...

Sofi Tukker are busy making extra-dimensional pop music.

Melodies that sting, lyrics that swoon, and beats that hit harder than a Hulk Hogan lawsuit – they’re all here, and they’re all completely addictive.

The duo are actually named Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern – hence the name, we presume – and were a sensation at this year’s SXSW.

A flurry of tracks then smashed HypeMachine apart, leaving digital trails all across the internet. Recently completing a mammoth North American tour with M83, Sofi Tukker have now begun to cast their gaze across the internet.

First, though, they’ve pieced together a new mixtape. ‘Animal Talk Vol. 1’ is fun, frisky, and completely nuts – seriously, this selection veers from continent to continent, generation to generation, completely in thrall to the love of the beat.
