Soccer Mommy keeps her lo-fi ‘Clean’ and pristine


When combing through the various SXSW reviews, there’s one buzzword band that pops up in almost every recap: Soccer Mommy. And for good reason: The NYC-via-Nashville artist’s new album Clean nails all the sugary bliss of bedroom pop (“Cool”), while keeping her lo-fi sensibilities in check (“Your Dog”). Think a slightly more chilled companion of Charly Bliss. Following an Allston gig with Phoebe Bridgers in February, Sophie Allison’s project rolls into Great Scott again tonight (May 1) with Long Beard. Peep all 10 new tracks below, and keep an eye out for the forthcoming special edition vinyl coming at the end of this month. Featured photo by Kelsey Hart.
