St. Lucia
St. Lucia is BACK with an infectious new single “Dancing On Glass” and a brand new album Matter. And with those comes a series of North American dates, following up on the band’s sold out fall 2014 headline tour.

St. Lucia’s 2013 debut LP When The Night earned raves everywhere from Entertainment Weekly (“an absolute smash”) to Elle (“we have an obsession for this group”) to Billboard (“essential listening”). The last two years have also seen the band touring with the likes of Ellie Goulding, Empire Of The Sun, Charli XCX, Foster The People, performed at Coachella and Lollapalooza, and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Late Night With Seth Meyers.

For New York duo SOFI TUKKER, comprised of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, these words are not just a guiding life principle, but how they measure the music they create. SOFI TUKKER’s “holy trinity,” as they describe it, is movement, community, and joy. Despite their yin-and-yang dynamic and coming from different worlds, the pair shares a deep-rooted spiritual connection around their music.
Halpern was on track to become a professional basketball player, focusing on NCAA stardom and training, before health problems put his athletic dreams on hold and caused his plans to take a serendipitous turn. While recuperating and on bed rest for nine months, Halpern taught himself how to produce electronic music and DJ, adding to the musical skills he had developed in numerous bands during his grade school years.
Hawley-Weld is something of a renaissance woman. Born in Germany, spending her youth in rural Canada and Italy, her international background sparked studies in International development, Brazilian poetry, yoga, and even West African drums and music. As soon as Tucker and Sophie first met, when Halpern stumbled upon Hawley-Weld singing bossa nova in a warehouse, they instantly jumped at the chance to collaborate.
Around this time, Tucker earned a gig supporting NY dance outfit The Knocks, who eventually helped nurture their early demos. “They became instant family, and encouraged us to pursue the collaboration for real,” Tucker recalls. Sophie and Tucker immediately made the jump to New York City and began working on their debut EP at the Knocks’ HeavyRoc Studios. That first week, they penned their debut single “Drinkee,” an instant viral smash that features Portuguese lyrics by Brazilian poet Chacal, now a friend of the group. After putting the track up on Soundcloud, “Drinkee” quickly topped the Spotify viral charts in South America and Europe, popped up on radio stations in countries the band had never visited, and perhaps most prominently featured as the soundtrack to the latest Apple Watch campaign.
Sophie and Tucker also set their sights on putting together a live show, which combines the duo’s unique personalities, instrumental skills, and their need to get a room full of people dancing. In their short live career, they have appeared at everything from Fashion Week to Art Basel to the CMJ Music Marathon, and are set to take their show across the USA and the globe later in the year.
The band has just finished their debut EP. The title, “Soft Animals,” is a nod to poet Mary Oliver. Their second track, “Matadora,” premiered the first week of 2016 on Apple’s world-spanning Beats 1 radio and cutting-edge NYC music bible the FADER, and topped the Hype Machine Popular chart before the track was even 3 days old. The EP promises a number of surprises, and shows Sophie and Tucker have created one of the most unique sounds the music community has heard in years – a heady cocktail that blends global instrumentation with modern technology, while sounding anything but machine-made. People have tried to categorize them, but nobody can seem to agree what box to put them in. That suits them just fine.
DL is OK
DL is OK
DL is OK is not bullshitting you. He shares his thoughts on love, sex and cutting loose by calling on his experiences living in New York, drinking in bars, and catching waves at the beach. His debut song “wavering” wears his love for sun-soaked rock and the girl who broke his heart right there on his faded sleeve.
