F**k They - Sofi Tukker |

I recently reviewed this song and music video for Outlet Magazine. This is what I love about writing for this website because I come across some amazing tracks and videos and this is most-definitely one of them. It later appeared as a snippet in one of Matt Crawford's videos and I knew I had to review the weird-ass music video for my blog because this is one heck of a groovy track that embeds itself in my head effortlessly. It's so catchy and the video is out of this world on the freakiness scale, and yet it's still relatable and totally works. Watch Sofi Tukker totally bring it, in their bizarre music video which shows them as not caring about what people think, for their song "Fuck They" - who's they anyway?

Sofi Tukker are a duo consisting of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, who have been making waves with this track as well as their debut; "Drinkee" was the first song they released and it was nominated for a Grammy award in 2017 - talk about launching well on the music scene. They've gone from strength to strength, and this particular song is making waves all around the world and deserves to at least chart somewhere because we all can't get enough of it!

The description of the video describes what the song is about: "'They' is anything that holds you back from being who you are. Whoever 'they' is in your life / in your mind, Fuck They! Who's they anyway?" - I totally back this 100%, stay strong, go forth, and be whoever you want to be.

There is so much going on in this music video, it's hard to keep up with it all. There's Sofi Tukker at the basketball courts, there's them acting as dogs, there's them in a car and on top of the car, there's them on the street talking to each other through a tin can telephone; and, we mustn't forget the awesome graffiti jacket that we all just really want!

The role reversal ending makes it all worth watching in the end. I'm obsessed with this song and its music video, and I really believe Sofi Tukker are a duo we should be keeping our eyes on as they are at the forefront of this musical wave that is quirky and different but will seriously change music for the better. How people aren't jumping on their style, music, and concept - I do not know.
