Over four albums Sophie Allison aka Soccer Mommy has become an ambassador for disenfranchised youth, giving voice to feelings of embarrassment, alienation and melancholy in a way that has become distinctly her own.

With tracks bearing the titles royal screw up and crawling in my skin, her lyrics bear the significance of diary entries, and her voice too possesses an anguish that isn’t shied away from. Musically, tracks step it up a gear as evidenced on the seven-minute epic Yellow is the color of her eyes, with Allison’s rich guitar tones across the record perfectly accompanying the poignancy of her words.

Color Theory by Soccer Mommy is out February 28 via Lorna Vista.
