You might know Sofi Tukker’s infectious songs from Apple commercials — hits “Drinkee” and “Best
Friend” were both in spots for the Apple Watch and the iPhone X — but the dance-pop duo wasn’t
created in a lab. A pair of Brown grads comprise Sofi Tukker: Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern
met when she was performing in a bossa nova band and he was deejaying. The musicians combined their
talents, drawing from international house and EDM to make bouncy, fun songs that reflect their excitable
personalities. With a Grammy nomination already under its belt, Sofi Tukker released full-length debut
Treehouse in April, which delivers unabashedly cheerful, tongue-in-cheek pop.
