Drinkee - Sofi Tukker

from the EP Soft Animals (2016)

Sofi Tukker are a duo of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, two NYC musicians who create great electro-pop vibes.

On Drinkee, a cool guitar riff creates the foundation for a tripped out dance vibe.  Over this, they sing in Portuguese to a lyric inspired by the Brazilian poet, Chacal.

I really dig the poems of Chacal.  Rising from the streets in the early 1970's, Chacal was a voice against the political persecution of Brazil's military dictatorship.  His style is almost manic and is laced with the rhythms of Brazilian music.  Poems and lyrics meld.

If you are ever so inclined, get yourself into an altered state, play Chacal's poetry loud and begin noodling on the instrument of your choice.  You will be better for it.

In the meantime, dig the vibe.  Sofi Tukker offer some of the best indie dance music I have heard this year.
