Soccer Mommy - 'Sometimes, Forever'

8/10

Ever since she first emerged with her incredible debut album 'Clean' back in 2018, singer and songwriter Sophie Allison aka Soccer Mommy has always brought something new and inventive to the scene. Showcasing her well-rounded and matured songwriting within a bold and intense indie-rock aesthetic has been the hallmark of her releases to date, and continues to shine as one of the world's most enigmatic acts. But for her third full-length 'Sometimes, Forever', she is embarking on something more euphoric and tender in equal measure as she confronts the demons inside her.

Dark and unwanted thoughts have always played a part in her lyrics to date, but on 'Sometimes, Forever', we see her bring those concepts to the forefront, almost in an attempt to vex them from her psyche. Working with producer Oneohtrix Point Never, who normally works in a very different arena than Soccer Mommy's guise, the pair have brought this wonderfully deep and sprawling direction to her work. Largely following up what we have heard on previous albums, these new offerings have this bigger and more passionate feel to them, something that really heightens the raw emotion within her words.

Soccer Mommy has rarely faltered over the years, but 'Sometimes, Forever' sees her take a fresh and innovative step forward in her work. With Oneohtrix Point Never's production seeing him focus solely on bringing out the best in her sound, there is something brilliantly mystical about this new effort, delivering something even more progressive and adventurous than we could ever think possible.
