SOC­CER MOMMY

Col­lec­tion 7/10 Aus­pi­cious in­die de­but from NYC-based songstress

UNCUT - - New Albums - DANIEL DY­LAN WRAY

this de­but of­fer­ing from 19-year-old So­phie allison is a breezy, re­laxed and pop-kissed eight tracks that re­calls the sum­mer-tinged melodies of Real Es­tate. there’s an un­de­ni­able knack for melody and songcraft that per­me­ates through the record, as on the woozy “Be­nadryl Dreams” and the qui­etly an­themic “Death By Choco­late”. Largely it falls into the line of nu­mer­ous con­tem­po­rary bands, from Mac DeMarco to Girlpool, that still op­er­ate within a dis­tinctly ’90s in­die tem­plate, but it largely man­ages to avoid va­pid rep­e­ti­tion and pro­vides plenty of charm and prom­ise for the fu­ture.
