Soccer Mommy, aka Sophie Allison, has announced the advent of her sophomore record color theory, out on February 28th. The album explores the artist’s own struggle with mental health that she’s been dealing with since her teen years. color theory revolves around three central color themes: blue (depression), yellow (physical & emotional illness), and gray (emptiness & loss). Along with the news, Soccer Mommy has shared a new track “circle the drain” as a glimpse of what’s in store:

“I wanted the experience of listening to color theory to feel like finding a dusty old cassette tape that has become messed up over time, because that’s what this album is: an expression of all the things that have slowly degraded me personally,” shared Allison. “The production warps, the guitar solos occasionally glitch, the melodies can be poppy and deceptively cheerful. To me, it sounds like the music of my childhood distressed and, in some instances, decaying.”
