Earlier this year, Soccer Mommy revisited her acclaimed debut album, Clean, by sharing a demo version of “Blossom”. The indie rocker also known as Sophie Allison is now looking ahead, though, as she’s just released a new song titled “Lucy” through Loma Vista Recordings.
While a glossy sheen coats the track’s surface, its bristly guitars hint at something a bit more forbidding — as well as a previously unknown side to Soccer Mommy’s creative mind. The Nashville-bred songwriter elaborated in a statement,
“‘Lucy’ is a really fun song for me because it has a dark, evil vibe. It’s a song about struggling with inner demons and your own morality, but I masked it with this scenario of being seduced by the devil. I’m really excited to share this with everyone because I think it shows a different side of my writing.”
