New York-based electronic duo Sofi Tukker (aka Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern) have teamed up with UK’s Gorgon City for a new club anthem titled “House Arrest.”
The song pairs Hawley-Weld’s sultry vocals with an intoxicating house-inspired beat. “This is house arrest / Come but wear your Sunday best / This is house arrest / La-da-di-da-di-da-dum,” she sings on the chorus.
According to a press release, the song came together “last summer when [Hawley-Weld] broke her foot and had to be off her feet for two months.” “We started this song on ‘House Tuesday,’ a gathering of the homies every Tuesday to have fun and improvise house music,” Sofi Tukker explained.
“We originally didn’t intend to make a song but we loved what we were doing so much that we recorded it. Eventually, we sent it to Gorgon City because we thought they were just what it needed to make it perfect.”
“House Arrest” is the latest release from Sofi Tukker, who previously dropped their Dancing on the People EP in 2019. Meanwhile, Gorgon City teamed up with AlunaGeorge and Gryffin for the song “Baggage” in September.
