Soccer Mommy Announces 7″ Single – Out October 5th

August 22, 2018

Soccer Mommy announced a new 7″ single today available for pre-order HERE. The single’s A-Side is a newly reworked version of “Henry,” a song that originally appeared on Soccer Mommy’s 2016 collection For Young Hearts on Orchid Tapes. The B-Side is a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire,” a live show highlight that now has a long-awaited studio recording.

“I wanted to make a version of ‘I’m On Fire’ that connected with the sadness of the song,” explains Allison. “I think that doing a more stripped down version allowed me to make something that feels emotionally raw.” Stream the cover HERE and pre-order the limited “Red Smoke” 7″, out October 5th via Fat Possum, HERE.

 

The 7″ follows on the heels of her debut album, Clean, that has already received mid-year Best of 2018 nods from the likes of TIME, NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Stereogum, The AV Club, Paste, The Ringer, Uproxx, Vinyl Me, Please and more

More praise for Soccer Mommy’s debut album, Clean:

“Clean is Allison’s excellent studio debut: a compact album of clear melodies, plainspoken lyrics, and the impossibly tangled logic of infatuation.” Pitchfork (Best New Music, 8.4)

“Clean greatly expands the scope of Ms. Allison’s songs in both words and music… Both clear-eyed and passionate, she is growing up in public, unabashed.” – New York Times

“She combines mischief and bluntness in the manner of Liz Phair, and her voice has a quality like melting ice cream—sweet and appealingly messy, slipping around the pitch of a note.” The New Yorker

“Soccer Mommy’s Clean is one of the best rock records of the 2018 so far” The FADER (Gen F)
