Recently, SOFI TUKKER have become a national case in Italy with their debut single Drinkee, which led them to the top of Spotify & iTunes charts thanks to the support of the most listened national radio, who also invited them to play for the huge birthday party they hosted in Rome two weeks ago. But you know that we like to be always ahead of the game, so here’s Hey Lion, the latest offering by Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern. The song opens with a slight hand clap over an essential minimal beat, but soon it becomes a feast of tropical percussions where Sophie’s smooth voice acts as the master of ceremonies of this exclusive party.

Speaking about the track, Sophie says that “‘Hey Lion’ is like a sonic snack. It’s not like ‘Drinkee’ or ‘Matadora,’ which were made as vibration journeys. ‘Hey Lion’ is like the opening chant to Soft Animals…we want to welcome people into our version of this animal-world, where strength is soft and nobody is boss (except for youuuuu and your bodyyyyy which may love what it loves).
