by Abigail Charpentier - Nov 19, 2019

Nashville native Soccer Mommy (a.k.a. Sophie Allison) released 'lucy,' her first new song since her 2018 breakout debut album Clean, earlier this fall. Showcasing a bolder sound, more advanced production, and Allison's masterful songwriting and wordplay kicked up a notch, 'lucy' is now followed by a 7+ minute epic called 'yellow is the color of her eyes.'  ''yellow is the color of her eyes' is a song that is really important to me,' Allison explains. 'The song was inspired by a time when I was on the road constantly and I felt like I was losing time - specifically with my mother. It's also a song that I feel really showcases my writing when it comes to instrumentation, so it's one that makes me really proud.' The track, which features Mary Lattimore on harp, is out now alongside a stunning short film by Her Smell director Alex Ross Perry.
