Over the weekend, Sophie Allison put her money where her vote is by performing at a Bernie Sanders rally in Houston, Texas. While her band Soccer Mommy is set to release their much anticipated new album color theory this Friday, they’ve decided to drop one more single before an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tomorrow. What you’ll get from the animated video and the new single “bloodstream” is that the new album should be as great as you’d hope it to be.
The song shows the depths of how far the band has come in terms of songwriting. The riffs that start the track are up enough to allow the vocals to peer into your mind. Catchy isn’t the word here, though it is a catchy track. The arrangements and the swirls of sound that fill the speakers create an extraordinary tone. Soccerr Mommy is on another level here, upping their game without sounding over produced. The video, directed by Bella Clark plays out like an NES game for bedroom pop. In many ways, it pairs perfectly with everything within the track.
You can watch the video above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all streaming sites. color theory can be preordered in multiple bundles on multiple formats directly from Loma Vista before it drops February 28. Soccer Mommy is on tour March 16 through 22 at SXSW in Austin, TX until August 02 at Osheaga Festival in Montreal, QC. Her complete tour schedule is accessible here.
