New Release: Soccer Mommy – newdemo

Later this month, Soccer Mommy will release her new full-length album, Sometimes, Forever, and today she shares one final song ahead of the full album’s release. Following lead track “Shotgun,” the spellbinding “Unholy Affliction,” and album opener “Bones”, 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.”

Sometimes, Forever is Soccer Mommy’s boldest and most aesthetically adventurous work yet. 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 will be released on 24th June via Loma Vista
