After returning back in September with her single 'lucy', her first since her brilliant 2018 debut album 'Clean', singer-songwriter Sophie Allison aka Soccer Mommy is back once again with another wonderful new cut.
The new track 'yellow is the color of her eyes' is a sprawling 7-minute epic of a release that also features Mary Lattimore on harp, and comes accompanied by a new short film, directed by Alex Ross Perry.
Speaking about her new offering, she said, "’yellow is the color of her eyes’ is a song that is really important to me. The song was inspired by a time when I was on the road constantly and I felt like I was losing time - specifically with my mother. It’s also a song that I feel really showcases my writing when it comes to instrumentation, so it’s one that makes me really proud.“
Explaining the new video, director Perry added, “The challenge of creating a 7-minute piece was daunting and irresistible in equal measure. Having just completed a film for which the colour-coded design of it's various acts was of the utmost importance, Sophie's idea of collaborating on a short-form film to compliment her similarly-conceived new music was irresistible.
“Running with her idea of locations evoking where she wrote this song, the concept couldn't have announced itself more boldly. To that, I shared images from Breaking the Waves and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It wasn't until we got the footage back that I realised a dash of first-scene-of-Inception had snuck in there, as well."
