Soccer Mommy has returned with ‘lucy’, her first new music of the year.
The singer – real name Sophie Allison – released her debut album ‘Clean’ last year, and the new music is her first for new label Loma Vista Recordings.
The new song, which comes complete with a visualiser, comes ahead of a number of tour dates in support of Vampire Weekend and Wilco. Watch/listen below.
Speaking of the new song, Allison says: “lucy’ is a really fun song for me because it has a dark, evil vibe. It’s a song about struggling with inner demons and your own morality, but I masked it with this scenario of being seduced by the devil.
“I’m really excited to share this with everyone because I think it shows a different side of my writing.”
‘Clean’, released last year via Saddle Creek, was an album to “make you feel young and in love” as a four-star NME review wrote.
“The production trickery, paired with Allison’s lyrical nuances, make her songwriting, and this debut record, a dazzling and devastating triumph. Having established herself as one of America’s great young songwriters with this debut LP, Allison’s got the world at her feet – and we trust her to hit even harder next time around.”
Soccer Mommy’s tours with Vampire Weekend and Wilco begin next week in Canada, and she also plays a host of headline dates among the support tours before the end of the year.
