“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.” the limited edition release “Red Smoke” 7″, is out October via Fat Possum Records,

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 NPR, Rolling Stone, Billboard,Stereogum, Uproxx, Vinyl Me Please, all giving high 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)
