Five Things We Loved About Sofi Tukker's Heaven Show
It was incredible...
Last night we went to see funky pop-dance duo Sofi Tukker do their thing at London’s Heaven.
The group (named after members Sofi and Tukker) brought their unique energy to the stage for a riot of a show, owning the space and teaching us all some new dance moves.
Here are five things we loved at their show:
THEY HAVE SUBSTANCE AND STYLE
Sofi and Tukker both have distinctive styles- Sofi floated on to the stage in a long cape and an all-white outfit, whereas Tukker opted for loud checked shorts and leggings with a shock of green in his hair. Their cool get-ups were contrasted with the bright pink tiger print projected behind them, and all of this set the tone for their weird and wonderful set, complimenting their fun and carefree performance.
THEY’RE NOT AFRAID OF GETTING DOWN AND DIRTY
There were obviously some BIG Sofi Tukker fans in the audience last night, but they weren’t the only ones feeling the love. The duo spent some of their set down in the pit dancing with the crowd, and even invited them on stage to dance. Tukker explained that this was their biggest London gig which is impressive as they had EVERYBODY moving.
THINGS GOT A BIT POLITICAL
‘We’re usually positive people, but there is one person we hate’. Sofi introduced their angry, heavy track ‘Greed’ by dedicating it to Trump, running round the stage as it was bathed in red light. This frenzied track with Sofi’s shouted lyrics was a different vibe from the otherwise joyous gig, and gave people a chance to let off some steam.
THEIR SET UP
Sofi Tukker’s stage set up revolved around a huge tree- like structure, but each leaf was actually an electronic drum pad! Each part was decorated differently, and the pair often headed to the ‘tree’ to bring the beat, battling it out on either side.
THEY'RE TOTALLY IN SYNCH
Whether it was creating the complex rhythms on the ‘tree’ or through the subtle side-steps while playing guitar, Sofi Tukker were in complete synch the whole time. Their dance moves were not the most complex routines we’ve ever seen, but the wrist-flicks in ‘Awoo’ and break down during ‘Best Friend’ were perfectly timed!
Sofi Tukker finished their set at Heaven with fan-favourite ‘Drinkee’, showing off Sofi’s ability to sing in Portuguese! We loved every part of their high energy show last night, and can’t wait to see what they do next!
