Soccer Mommy, A.K.A. 21-year-old Sophie Allison, unveiled the demo version of Clean‘s “Blossom” along with releasing “Be Seeing You” to streaming services.
Like the version from her Clean LP, the “Blossom” demo aches with the wistfulness of “wasting all my time” on someone who just isn’t worth it through the acknowledgement that a potential new partner, who though far away, makes sure to take the time to show their love. The demo is a fully fleshed out, well-crafted rendition, with warm, harmonized coos and with a slightly quicker cadence than the more stripped-down style on Clean.
“‘Blossom’ was one of the first songs I wrote for Clean,” Allison said in a statement. “It was before I even realized Clean was going to exist. I was always happy with the demo – it got made in the basement of my dorm room when I was still in college.”
“Be Seeing You,” which was previously only available physically as the B-side from her “Last Girl” 7-inch and on BandCamp, will be released to streaming services for the first time. Allison said it’s an even older track than “Blossom.” “It’s an old favorite of mine so I’m happy to see it get released everywhere,” she said in a statement.
Soccer Mommy is in the midst of a headlining tour, with her next show taking place on February 6th at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas. In mid-February she will serve as support for Kacey Musgraves for a string of dates before resuming her own trek with appearances at several festivals, including Coachella, Governor’s Ball and Primavera Sound.
