She’s also shared lead single ‘circle the drain’.

New year means new albums and Soccer Mommy is continuing the trend announcing that her sophomore record ‘color theory’ will be landing on 28th February!

Divided into three central themes which chart Sophie Allison’s emotional journey, blue represents sadness and depression, yellow represents physical and emotional illness, and grey explores darkness, emptiness and loss.

“I wanted the experience of listening to color theory to feel like finding a dusty old cassette tape that has become messed up over time, because that’s what this album is: an expression of all the things that have slowly degraded me personally,” she says. “The production warps, the guitar solos occasionally glitch, the melodies can be poppy and deceptively cheerful. To me, it sounds like the music of my childhood distressed and, in some instances, decaying.”

Check out the track list and lead single ‘circle the drain’ now.
