SOFI TUKKER have had a milestone year in 2022, ever since the release of their sophomore album, ‘WET TENNIS’. The duo comprised of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern have performed numerous sold-out shows throughout the U.S. and Europe during the year. Meanwhile, their music continues to sell , as they achieved their second gold record in the United States as the RIAA certified their single “Purple Hat” gold this August. During the summer, ESPN partnered with SOFI TUKKER on a campaign to celebrate this year’s US Open that features the duo’s single “Summer In New York”. Most recently, they launched their ‘WET TENNIS’ fashion line, created in collaboration with renowned designer Johnny Wujek, that sold out of the first drop. The initial drop from the line featured the unisex outfits worn by the group on the WET TENNIS album cover, accessories, and the radiant color ombre of the album iconography.
SOFI TUKKER spoke with B-Sides host Pete Mar about performing at Austin City Limits 2022, the success of their album ‘Wet Tennis’, the clothing line and more.
