soccer mommy – sometimes, forever

Sophie Allison’s position in indie rock is a neat bedroom on the upper west wing. She is a delightful guest and the indie serving staff get along with her well, despite her reclusive inclinations. ‘Sometimes, Forever’ is her first LP since February 2020. There is a complete modernity to the production packaging that flatters the Nashville singer’s knack for incisive breaks and ‘no frills’ pop melodies. It is not as easy a ride as her innate country delights would suppose: the diversity can be choppy and the experiments, as on ‘newdemo’, do sometimes collapse under their own weight. Soccer Mommy still, however, enthralls with sharpness and serenity.
