Hot on the heels of their debut Good Morning America performance, Sofi Tukker release their new single “Purple Hat”. The single is exemplary of what made the world fall in love with the group, a joyous paean to communal dancing and letting your freak flag fly with a monster riff and playfully adventurous production.
The song is featured on their forthcoming EP DANCING ON THE PEOPLE (Out Sept. 20th), and the EP’s title is pulled from the lyrics. The group says, “We wrote ‘Purple Hat’ the day after our first Animal Talk party. We started throwing these parties to bring back the wild and inclusive dancing vibe to the nightclub experience. Tuck was literally wearing a purple hat and a cheetah print shirt, people were climbing on top of people, it was over sold out and sweaty, our favourite people were packed in the booth, everyone was loose and feeling themselves. It was wild. Every Animal Talk party since then has been like that and we wanted to capture that raw feeling in a song. If there was a song that included everything we are about, this would be the one.”
