Soccer Mommy, has released the final editions of her Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series today. Following releases with Jay Som, Beabadoobee and Gentle Dom, a.k.a. Andrew VanWyngarden of MGMT, SASAMI and Soccer Mommy share covers today.
The Bandcamp net profits from the Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series will go to Oxfam’s COVID-19 relief fund and National Bail Out, to help combat both Coronavirus and the important fight against police brutality and systematic racism. Oxfam has an anonymous donor who will match every dollar raised for them by this series, up to $5000, which will double the impact of your purchase.
Sophie says of the release, “I’m really glad to get to release this cover of drive. It’s a song I’ve loved for a long time that I started covering pretty recently. It was nice to get to record one last thing in the studio before everything shut down.”
SASAMI, released her self-titled debut album in March 2019. Ten tautly melodic rock tracks describing the surprising ways in which one’s relationships – with lovers, friends, oneself – can shift in a single year. Since then, then, she has toured relentlessy, curated an issue of the Yes Plz zine, released a holiday 3-track single, lil drmr bb, and a new track, Mess.
As of late, Soccer Mommy has found various ways to stay busy during quarantine. Combining her love of video games and performing, Soccer Mommy held a digital concert on the online gaming platform Club Penguin Rewritten a few weeks ago, with 10,000+ attendees (who all had to make their own penguin avatars to attend).The singer/songwriter embarked on another tour, of sorts: an 8-bit music video tour, hitting some of the cities she was meant to be currently passing through, including Toronto, ON.
