Soccer Mommy Announces Sophomore Album “Color Theory”, Shares Lead Single

By: Staff –

Soccer Mommy—twenty-two year-old Sophie Allison—has announced her triumphant sophomore album, Color Theory. Confronting the ongoing mental health and familial trials that have plagued Allison since pre-pubescence, color theory explores three central themes: blue, representing sadness and depression; yellow, symbolizing physical and emotional illness; and, finally, gray, representing darkness, emptiness and loss. Written mostly while on tour and recorded in Allison’s hometown of Nashville at Alex The Great, color theory was produced by Gabe Wax (who also produced Clean), mixed by LarsStalfors (Mars Volta, HEALTH, St. Vincent), and features the live Soccer Mommy band on studio recording for the first time, with a live take at the foundation of almost every track.

Color Theory will be released on February 28th via Loma Vista Recordings, and the album’s massive lead single “Circle The Drain” is out today. Watch its Atiba Jefferson-directed (American Football, Turnstile, TV On The Radio, Dinosaur Jr.) music video that was shot at an abandoned water park in Palm Springs and features pro-skateboarders Sean Malto, Jake Anderson, Curren Caples, and Nicole Hause below. Pre-order Color Theory on tri-color vinyl with exclusive poster + sticker sheet, CD, cassette, and digital download HERE.
