International Pop Underground: Soccer Mommy Made An Album with "A Lot More Evil In It"
When Sophie Allison set out to make her third studio LP as Soccer Mommy, the Nashville-based songwriter had hopes to do something different.
"I wanted to do something that I hadn't fully done before," Allison says.
"I had teased the idea of darker stuff many times, and I had gone into these more moody, dark tones but I hadn't fully let a record have a lot of evil in it, in the sense of that fantastical evil. I really wanted to do that. And I wanted to do something that transcended just being 'rock'."
The resulting record, Sometimes, Forever, finds Allison working with Daniel Lopatin of Oneohnotrix Point Never, pushing her sound into strange new shapes.
Speaking with Anthony Carew on The International Pop Underground, the 25-year-old musician talks about her new record, getting off social media, getting through lockdown, and more.
