Soccer Mommy announces new album 'color theory'

Following on from the stunning success surrounding her 2018 debut album 'clean', Soccer Mommy is back to announce the details behind her next studio record.

The new full-length 'color theory' explores three central themes: blue, representing sadness and depression; yellow, symbolising physical and emotional illness; and, finally, grey, representing darkness, emptiness and loss. Written mostly while on tour and recorded in Allison’s hometown of Nashville at Alex The Great alongside producer Gabe Wax, it is being previewed by the new lead single 'circle the drain' and is due to be released on the 28th February via Loma Vista.

Speaking about her upcoming release, she added, “I wanted the experience of listening to color theory to feel like finding a dusty old cassette tape that has become messed up over time, because that’s what this album is: an expression of all the things that have slowly degraded me personally. The production warps, the guitar solos occasionally glitch, the melodies can be poppy and deceptively cheerful. To me, it sounds like the music of my childhood distressed and, in some instances, decaying.”
