Soccer Mommy says breezy new track "Cool" comes from "a place of insecurity and idealisation"

30 January 2018, 11:53 | Written by Laurence Day

Nashville's supremely talented Soccer Mommy has unveiled masterful new cut "Cool", another preview of debut record Clean.

The new number from the 20-year-old singer/songwriter (real name Sophie Allison) joins up with "Your Dog" in previewing the LP.

"The song focuses on this other person who's desirable and cool, and it shows how sometimes you can romanticise the idea of being different than you are," explains Allison. "It comes from a place of insecurity and idealisation, which is a feeling that hangs over a lot of the album."

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 earlier this month she headlined 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.
