Back in 2015, Nashville-based artist Sophie Allison, aka Soccer Mommy, started posting home-recorded songs on Bandcamp – ‘just for fun’. Mind you, these bedroom songs already led to tours with acts such as Slowdive, Mitski and Franky Cosmos. Earlier this year Allison released her studio debut Clean, on which the 20-year-old seems to effortlessly echo the melodrama of youth into dazzling pop-rock songs. She’s able to soundtrack self-discovery whilst staying uncommonly familiar. Pitchfork labeled Clean some of the ‘best new music’, DIY mag gave it four out of five stars and The Fader called Soccer Mommy ‘2018’s chillest new rock star’. It seems somewhat safe to say Allison is the next big thing. For once, do believe the hype and come find out what all the fuss is about.
