A couple of years ago when we started hearing about Nashville’s Soccer Mommy, we wondered then when she’d make the jump from bedroom recordings to a more polished sound. While she did just that with last year’s Clean, her new single “Lucy” has a more atmospheric approach while expanding her sound at the same time. Now on Loma Vista, the jump to a bigger label should mean we’ll hear all sorts of new things from the band.
Immediately you notice the melodic tones of the guitar that get the track going before a synth comes in alongside a drum that causes a hook in the moments before the vocals from Sophie Allison come in. Utilizing dual vocals, Allison has a more nineties Brit-pop tone, structured within a more focused direction. With alternative underpinnings, it’s a new sound for the group without abandoning what got them here in the first place.
“Lucy” can be streamed on all streaming sites or purchased in all digital outlets or it can be pre-ordered on a seven inch vinyl directly from Loma Vista ahead of its December 05 release. Soccer Mommy will be on tour beginning September 20 at Amsterdam Bar and Hall in St Paul, MN until November 16 at Coca-Cola Sun Deck at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, AZ.
