Sofi Tukker “Swing”

Sofi Tukker are preparing to release the R.I.P. Shame, Pt. 1 EP on September 20th. This is the follow up to their Grammy nominated debut album Treehouse. The group also shared a new single, “Swing.”

Beginning with epic strings, “Swing” sounds like a battle song from Game of Thrones. Quickly a running bass line and swinging drums are added while the duo trades verses in Brazilian Portuguese. But don’t worry if you don’t understand, the band said “we collaborated with the Brazilian poet, Chacal, and the words are about words!! Like a lot of the things we do with Chacal, part of the meaning of it is just how nonsensical it is. It’s really about how delicious and delightful and also meaningless words ultimately are.”
