Lt Dan Buckley here with my DJ pick for this week featuring another track from the new Soccer Mommy album. Soccer Mommy is the stage name of 21 year old bedroom pop and indie rock musician Sophie Allison.
Her debut album album proper Clean was released earlier this year and beautifully intertwines empowerment and melancholy and edge and vulnerability. In the latest single “Cool,” Allison romanticizes being the rebel chick “Mary [with] a heart of coal,” who can easily manipulate boys and never be phased.
Allison stopped by the ONErpm studio last week to talk about growing up in Nashville, her 2018 major label debut, touring with Paramore, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks and headlining Mercy Lounge December 15. Buy tickets to this show here. Take a listen to “Cool” below and let us know what you think.
