Soccer Mommy aka Sophie Allison, is gifting us with new music every two weeks with the newly launched Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series.
The series will feature contributions from MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden, Beabadoobee and Beach Bunny, with new releases every two weeks. The series kicks off today with Jay Som’s cover of Soccer Mommy’s song “lucy,” and Soccer Mommy’s cover of Jay Som’s “I Think You’re Alright” now. Check out both covers below.
“I had an extremely fun time recording the ‘lucy’ cover,” says Jay Som. “Sophie has such a special way of entwining catchy melodies and sometimes dark chord progressions. I feel very lucky to be a part of this comp!” Soccer Mommy continues, “I’m super excited to kick things off with this Jay Som collab because Melina really made such an awesome new version of ‘lucy’. I have also always loved her song ‘I Think You’re Alright,’ so it was great to get a chance to cover it. It has such a sweet tenderness to it that just makes you feel warm inside.”
All sales on Bandcamp will be donated to Oxfam’s COVID-19 relief fund. Oxfam is working with partners to reach more than 14 million people in nearly 50 countries and the US to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 in vulnerable communities and support people’s basic food needs and livelihoods. Oxfam has an anonymous donor who will match every dollar raised by this series, up to $5000, which will double the impact of your purchase.
