Soccer Mommy, aka singer-songwriter Sophie Allison, is a name you should commit to heart. The twenty-year-old built a following with her Bandcamp bedroom recordings, which were classified as “sad girl music” but were also full of relatable narratives and sharp insights. After signing with Fat Possum, Allison returned to her native Nashville and released Clean, with a markedly empowered tone and plenty of guitar riffs, in March. Instead of fleeing the immature heartache of teenage years, Allison is still mining it for material. You can hear the influence of Liz Phair and Mitski in the kick, snarl and complexity of songs like “Your Dog” — but you can also hear Taylor Swift’s take on diary lines and how they can be the groundwork for a hook you can’t get out of your head. Soccer Mommy opens for Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks at the Gothic.
