Soccer Mommy announces debut record Clean ahead of Five Day Forecast show

09 January 2018, 16:22 | Written by Laurence Day

Soccer Mommy, who plays our new music festival The Five Day Forecast on Friday (12 January), has announced her debut record Clean.

Soccer Mommy (aka 20-year-old Sophie Allison) has also shared a video for lead single "Your Dog", directed by Weird Life.

"The song comes from a feeling of being paralyzed in a relationship to the point where you feel like you are a pawn in someone else's world," explains Allison. "The song and the video are meant to show someone breaking away and taking action, but at the same time, it's only a quick burst of motivation. It’s a moment of strength amidst a long period of weakness."

Clean comes after the success of last year's Collection release (one of our favourites of 2017) and a heap of DIY Bandcamp offerings. For her studio debut, the Nashville-born singer/songwriter worked with producer Gabe Wax (The War On Drugs, Beirut, Deerhunter).

"I’d never made a full album before, just EPs and random tracks thrown together. I wanted it to be a lot more cohesive than the rest of the stuff that came before," says Allison. "I wanted to make something that was a full piece of my life, that addressed similar themes and held together as a whole."

We can't wait for Clean - Soccer Mommy is a firm fave with us. We picked her out as One To Watch last summer, went behind the scenes for a Polaroid photoshoot during her first UK tour, and recently spoke to her about the pivotal songs in her life so far, and later this week she'll headline the sold-out final night of our new music festival, The Five Day Forecast, with Snail Mail and Honey Harper also on the bill.

Soccer Mommy will be back in the UK soon enough though, with a brief headline tour scheduled for March. Find out more.
