Popanz präsentiert SOCCER MOMMY (Nashville US, Fat Possum)
“I don’t want to be your fucking dog,” sings Soccer Mommy’s twenty-year-old Sophie Allison on “Your Dog,” a highlight from her album Clean (2018, Fat Possum). Over knotty, distorted guitars and churning bass, Allison is equal turns confrontational and vulnerable. “I want a love that lets me breathe/I’ve been choking on your leash.” It’s a mission statement, a reclamation of power, a rewriting of all indie rock’s rules.
Clean was produced by Gabe Wax (War On Drugs, Deerhunter, Beirut) and mixed by Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, PJ Harvey). It’s an emotional album, heavy on themes of growth, isolation, and change, but balanced by a lightness of touch, and with hooks to spare.
'Two of 2018’s hottest indie acts, Soccer Mommy and Snail Mai' - The Rolling Stone
'Sophie Allison’s excellent studio debut is a compact album of clear melodies, plainspoken lyrics, and the impossibly tangled logic of infatuation.' - Pitchfork / Best New Music
