SOFI TUKKER & Icona Pop Drop Collab ‘Spa’ + Announces Insomniac House Tuesdays
SOFI TUKKER team up with fellow globally chart-topping duo Icona Pop for a brand new single “Spa,” out now via RECORD COMPANY TEN/Ultra Music. The foursome preach unadulterated self-confidence and self-care, best encapsulated in the song’s opening lyrics delivered by Icona Pop with sultry swagger, “Naked bodies everywhere/It’s okay, you can stare.”
Speaking on the collaboration, SOFI TUKKER (née Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern) share: “There’s nothing like making a song with friends we love and admire. We had so much fun in the studio with Icona Pop making this track. We hope people can feel the joy and giddiness and ridiculousness that we all felt while making it. Even though we miss the club now more than ever, there’s also never been such an important time for self care. Put some cuces on your eyes.”
Icona Pop’s Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo add: “We’ve been huge fans of SOFI TUKKER for a long time and doing this collaboration was really a dream. It was pure creative happiness in the studio and even though it was our first time working together it all felt so natural. This song is weird in the very best way and we hope that people can have a rave spa at home while listening to it.”
“Spa” comes on the heels of SOFI TUKKER’s collaboration with Russian DJ/producer Novak, and Dutch DJ/producer YAX.X, “Emergency.” “Emergency” is a dancefloor juggernaut with a sense of urgency that commands you to spring into action. The animated video for “Emergency”, directed by Jared Asher Harris with illustrations by Burton Booz, that puts you behind the wheel of an emergency vehicle on the run in a noir cityscape overlaid with neon text, emergency lights and X-rays of injuries.
SOFI TUKKER have recently celebrated their 200th livestream with a Freak Fam Prom. The Freak Fam is the online community that has emerged around the group’s daily sets and are featured in the music video for their collaborative single with Gorgon City, “House Arrest.” They’ve also announced a partnership with Insomniac for a special “House Tuesdays” October residency.
