Who’s this electronic pop and Brazilian-influenced dance sensation? Sofi Tukker, the New York City duo of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, are topping indie charts with their hot, rhythmic club track “Matadora,” which is the second single off their upcoming debut EP, Soft Animals, following their first single “Drinkee” remixed by The Knocks.
“Matadora,”a name that lives up to its definition of a matador, or a bullfighter whose task is to kill the bull, is one powerful drumbeat that hits like the force of two charging animals (female animals hence the feminine noun). The wail of an Andean instrument, the charango, is the epicenter of the track, creating a melodramatic scene of animals attacking and humans chanting.
Sofi Tukker hits tour next week starting in New York City and ending in Los Angeles. Find out what city they’ll be playing in near you!
