Soccer Mommy Shares New Single “new demo” 

Sometimes, Forever, Produced by Daniel Lopatin 

(Oneohtrix Point Never), out 24th June 

Later this month, Soccer Mommy will release her new full-length album, Sometimes, Forever, produced by Daniel Lopatin of Oneohtrix Point Never. The album and its early singles have already received praise as one of the best releases of 2022 so far, and today Soccer Mommy shares one final song ahead of the full album’s release. Following lead track “Shotgun,” the spellbinding “Unholy Affliction,” and album opener “Bones” which received an Alex Ross Perry-directed music video, is “newdemo.

The weightless song spins delicately layered harmonies and mystical synths into an end-of-the-world reverie; the impending apocalypse has never sounded so jaw-droppingly beautiful. “I didn’t want to make something super depressing without any sense of magic,” Sophie explains. “We played around with the space to make the song feel vast, so ‘newdemo’ had a huge transformation in the studio. It’s one of my favorites off of the record.”  The song premiered alongside a conversation with Zane Lowe on Apple Music – listen to the interview now HERE and listen to the track below-

Rich textures soaked with this flanger-feel vibrance emerge and hooks your attention instantly. Drawing on a variety of textures to build the expressive landscape whilst softer tones and organic rhythms build the depth of the structure, Soccer Mommy’s vocal notes soar above the instrumentation providing a raw attribute and exploring such delicate and intimate lyrics. The tonality resonates this melancholic nature which goes hand in hand with the dynamic harmonies on offer throughout.

Soccer Mommy will be playing live shows across the globe in support of Sometimes, Forever, including Leisure Festival and End Of The Road Festival this summer and a full run of UK headline shows this Autumn.See below to find a Touring, Forever show near you, get tickets HERE and, for a taste of what to expect on the road, watch the band’s recent performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon HERE.

Sometimes, Forever is Soccer Mommy’s boldest and most aesthetically adventurous work yet, and it cements Sophie Allison’s status as one of the most gifted songwriters making rock music right now.The album sees Allison once again tapping into the turn-of-the-millennium sensibilities she’s known for, as she advances her self-made sonic world beyond the present and into the future with experimental-minded production, an expanded moodboard of vintage touchstones, and some of her most sophisticated songwriting to date. Inspired by the concept that neither sorrow nor happiness is permanent, Sometimes, Forever is a fresh peek into the mind of an artist who synthesizes everything — retro sounds, personal tumult, the relatable disorder of modern life — into original music that feels built to last a long time. Maybe even forever.

Sometimes, Forever will be released on 24th June via Loma Vista
