Sofi Tukker's Video For 'Drinkee' Is A Psychedelic Dance Party

Sofi Tukker wants you to get lost in a weird, psyched out world of dance. In the new video for "Drinkee," the New York-based duo, which is made up of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, plays in a tropical jungle diorama, accompanied by Grecian style statues in neon colors, parrots and one giant goldfish. Hawley-Weld and Halpern say the video for "Drinkee" isn't supposed to make any sense: It's the kind of video that might as well be the concept for a nightclub, with scenes of band members staring dead into the camera before a zebra printed backdrop or behind deadpanning models wearing brightly colored outfits.

The song itself takes inspiration from the poem Relógio, by the Brazilian Portuguese writer Chacal, which they outfit in a stylish beat that would be equally at home in a fashion week party or an Apple ad. Of the words, the duo writes, "We wanted it to act like a chant in which the point is just the act of repetition." It's a track that's dedicated to making sure you get out of your head and get on the dance floor.

"Drinkee" comes from the band's self-released EP, Soft Animals, out now.
