The Knocks (feat. Sofi Tukker) – Brazilian Soul

Okay, the track is called Brazilian Soul, but it’s an all-American affair. An all-New York affair, to be precise, for that’s where both Ben ‘B-Roc’ Ruttner and James ‘JPatt’ Patterson (The Knocks), and Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern (Sofi Tukker) are based. Last year, the groups collaborated on Best Friend, which ended up on Sofi Tukker’s album Treehouse. This new alliance can be found on The Knocks’s new album New York Narcotic, which also features guest vocalists like Foster The People, Method Man, and Alexis Krauss from Sleigh Bells.

As you’d expect from its title, Brazilian Soul has a sunny vibe, although it almost sounds more like the band Jungle than the participating acts themselves. The track’s video culls together footage from Brazil’s rich culture and heritage, showing images from the lush Brazilian rainforest, to the soccer pitch, to the white sand beaches and dense urban city of São Paulo.
