SOCCER MOMMY – ” Shotgun “

Posted: March 27, 2022 in MUSIC

Soccer Mommy has announced a new album, “Sometimes, Forever” , and shared the instantly addictive first single, “Shotgun.” So excited to announce that my next rec ‘Sometimes, Forever’ is out in June, It feels like a long time coming and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Soccer Mommy (aka Sophie Allison) announced the release of a new album, “Sometimes, Forever“, which will be out on June 24th via Loma Vista. Allison also shared a video for the album’s lead single, “Shotgun.” 

The new track opens with a grungy melodic guitar and snappy drums. Sophie Allison’s hushed, satiny vocals detail the thrill of a sweet relationship. “Uppers and my heart never meshed / I hated coming down / But this feels the same without the bad things,” she sings on the opening verse. Visceral images of fogged windows, menthol breath, and a room dirtied with beer bottles and ice cream cartons transport us into the middle of a relationship that makes Soccer Mommy feel like a “bullet in a shotgun ready to sound.” Galaxies away from “Color Theory’s” sombre tone, “Shotgun” allows Allison to flex her skilled song writing in an entirely different hue.

Kevin Lombardo directed the video. “‘Shotgun’ is all about the joys of losing yourself in love,” explains Allison in a press release. “I wanted it to capture the little moments in a relationship that stick with you.”

Sometimes, Forever” was produced by Oneohtrix Point Never. Allison’s most recent album was “color theory“, came out in 2020 via Loma Vista.
