Sofi Tukker – ‘Cry For You’
There aren’t really that many artists who I would completely drop everything for when a new release came into the world, but then again there aren’t many folks out there who’d go touring the stages of the world with a percussive tree behind them. Welcome to Sofi Tukker.
Since 2016’s ‘Drinkee’, Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern have kept dragging my ears through all sorts of delectable tropical grooves, and their debut LP Treehouse still ranks as one of my favourite of the year so far. Today’s entry, however, comes with a twist: it’s a tremendous cover of a tremendous 2008 Europop thing from September that I’ve completely forgotten about ever since its release.
I’ve been robbing myself of its joys for A DECADE.
I hate myself sometimes.
NB: With this being a Spotify Sessions track, there’s no video to go alongside this, but we can’t let you go away empty-handed. Here’s a flashback to the time I interviewed them during their pre-album European tour for the Student Radio Chart Show, in which we talked about all sorts of delightful things (like percussive trees and one of them finding the other incredibly boring when they first met. What a band.
