Soccer Mommy, the project of Sophie Allison, recently revealed that she’d be releasing a collection of songs called, um, ‘Collection’ via Fat Possum, which would feature a handful of older tracks alongside new cuts.
After sharing ‘Out Worn’, she’s now shared the opening track of the album, ‘Allison’, as well as a video directed by Harry James Clifford. In it, we follow Sophie around as she heads down to the coastline to dip her toes in the water and as she pops to the woods for a bit of contemplation and lying in the leaves.
Speaking to The FADER, Sophie said that, perhaps unsurprisingly, it’s one of the most personal tracks on the record: “I spent last year away from the person I was seeing and I focused a lot on my music and this song is kind of a reflection of the distance and loneliness I felt while spending time on my art”.
Soccer Mommy has also just joined the line-up for this year’s Visions. There, she’ll be joined by Kero Kero Bonito, Jenny Hval, Noga Erez, Shame, Frankie Cosmos, SOPHIE and Sacred Paws. And the dog show, of course.
Watch the video for ‘Allison’ below.
