When asked to describe the various elements that came together to form their first full-length record, Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern—the duo better known as SOFI TUKKER—both let out a simultaneous laugh. “Lots of craziness,” says Sophie, “It’s the sound of traveling and excitement and new friends and endless shows and total exhaustion and learning more about ourselves through it all. It sounds like our lives.”

It makes sense that Treehouse, SOFI TUKKER’s sparkly new album, would encapsulate the sound of so much wildness. Since releasing their debut EP, Soft Animals, back in the summer of 2016, the New York duo have ridden a wave of attention that neither could have ever anticipated. The band was catapulted into the spotlight by the success of their first ever single, the genre-smashing “Drinkee,” which, after being featured in an ad for the Apple Watch, quickly went on to rack up over 45 million Spotify streams and snag a Grammy nomination—no small feat for a song adapted from a piece of Brazilian poetry and sung entirely in Portuguese, one of the languages that Sophie speaks and has a particular passion for.Before they could fully make sense of what was happening, the two found themselves playing in front of increasingly larger audiences, wowing clubs and festival stages all over the world. 

The give and take with audiences—and the feeling of creating a kind of ecstatic communal space—is at the heart of Treehouse, a record that seamlessly marries the vibe of classic house music with deft guitars and exotic percussion. “A Treehouse is this magical place where you can allow yourself to return to this childlike state of awe and creation. Anything goes in a Treehouse. We loved that idea because that is what we’re always trying to create—a safe space where everyone can experiment and be themselves. It’s this elevated space in nature that can bring you back to those childhood impulses and freedoms.” 

At a time when the world feels particularly chaotic, pop music not only provides a temporary escape, but also serves to connect us—even if it’s just briefly—to our core values of friendship, community, and togetherness. In the case of “Best Friend,” that spirit of friendship was infectious, as the song went on to become a Top 20 US hit at Pop and Alternative radio and earned all bands involved their first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 and US network television debut. 

“One of the things that always fascinated me about dance music—house music, in particular—was that it came from this place of freedom,” says Tucker. “It came from these rooms where people went to feel liberated. When we felt this connection playing music for people, whether it was a hundred people in a tiny room or 20,000 people at a festival, we realized that connection is the ultimate goal. I don’t know if we really knew that when we first started touring, but once we did, that changed how we thought about making music. That became the biggest inspiration on our music moving forward. I hope this album shows that.”
