VIDEO: INTERVIEW – SOFI TUKKER at Treasure Island Music Festival 2016

sofi-tukkerOne of the highlights at the Treasure Island Music Festival 2016 was the afternoon set by SOFI TUKKER. The origins of the band dates back just a few years back when the pair met at an art gallery where Hawley-Weld was performing when Halpern remixed a song right on the spot. Though the pair was interested in making music together, things didn’t really take shape until a chance opportunity for Halpern, who was a producer/DJ, to open for The came about. After listening to a few demos, The Knocks convinced Halpern to pursue the collaboration with Hawley-Weld further.

SOFI TUKKER took a moment after their set during the Treasure Island Music Festival 2016 to speak with B-Sides On-Air host Pete Mar about their chance encounter, the energy at their live shows and more. Check out the interview:
