Soccer Mommy, aka Sophie Allison, takes us on a dark quirky dance with her inner demons in her new single “lucy.” Beneath the buoyant fluidity and smooth melancholia, there is an undeniable wry charm that is sprinkled with Allison’s own dark humor where she opens up about her own inner struggles while keeping the tone light. In a way, “lucy” mirrors our own attraction to the dark side – enjoy:

“‘lucy’ is a really fun song for me because it has a dark, evil vibe. It’s a song about struggling with inner demons and your own morality, but I masked it with this scenario of being seduced by the devil. I’m really excited to share this with everyone because I think it shows a different side of my writing,” shared Soccer Mommy.
