Sofi Tukker have written a love song to each other in the form of Best Friend, a celebration of their years of friendship and the fun they’ve had together. An EBM style bassline throbs under their signature musical magic – bits of blues, funk, techno, rap and more, all smothered with layers of attitude and musical sass.
Speaking about Best Friend the dynamic duo says: “This song is a celebration of our favourite thing ever: friendship. It’s about the kind of friendship where you can talk forever without anything in particular to talk about. Old friends, new friends, all friends! In the spirit of friendship, we just wanted to have some of our friends hop on a verse! We’ve been lucky enough to travel the world this past year and the best part of the journey is the friendships we have made and the friendships we have been lucky enough to revisit along the way. We (Soph and Tuck) have also become each other’s best friend over the past few years, and we are so grateful to each other!
Our friendship with The Knocks is what gave us the confidence to pursue a career in music, thank you Broc and Jpatt! Nervo, newer friends, inspire us and motivate us to push ourselves and be relentlessly positive, thank you Mim and Liv! Alisa is a brand-new friend who we share a ton of mutual friends with and we are also building a new friendship with Japan. We are so looking forward to going back! This track is especially fun because now we have an excuse to perform together, shoot a music video together and generally share the joy of music with some of our favourite people.”
