TORONTO, ON – September 22, 2023 – Soccer Mommy – Nashville-based artist Sophie Allison – releases her Karaoke Night EP today, a collection of genre-spanning covers of songs from some of her favourite artists. Out now via Loma Vista, Karaoke Night features covers of songs by Sheryl Crow, Taylor Swift, R.E.M., Pavement, and Slowdive. 
Allison has cited both Crow and Swift as early influences, is a long-time fan of R.E.M., and has toured with both Pavement and Slowdive. Soccer Mommy opened for Stephen Malkmus on tour in 2018, and appeared at the Pavement Museum in 2022, where she performed alongside Snail Mail, Bully and Speedy Ortiz. Following her opening slot for Slowdive in 2017, Soccer Mommy’s acoustic cover of Dagger has been a staple of the band’s live performance.
“All the covers on Karaoke Night are from artists that have inspired me throughout my life,” says Allison. “I find that each of these songs has a different reason for appealing to me - and that’s what made it so fun getting to record them. I wanted to make these songs my own while also staying true to what originally drew me to them.”
Download, stream or purchase the EP here, watch visualizers out for all five of the covers here and listen to Dagger here.
To accompany the EP, Soccer Mommy is also releasing karaoke versions of some of her greatest hits. The Soccer Mommy Super Hits Party Pack features singles from all three of her full-length records, including Your Dog and Scorpio Rising from Clean, Circle The Drain and Yellow Is The Color Of Her Eyes from color theory, Shotgun and Feel It All The Time from Sometimes, Forever, and more.

Sometimes, Forever was named one of the best albums of 2023 but the likes of The New York Times, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, NPR, Vulture, Associated Press, Billboard, Stereogum, The A.V. Club, FLOOD, Paste, Uproxx, and more, with, Shotgun named one of the top songs of 2023 by The Los Angeles Times, Buzzfeed, NPR, Gorilla vs. Bear, Pitchfork, Consequence, Vulture, NYLON, Billboard and more. Sometimes, Forever debuted on the Billboard charts, taking the #1 slot for Heatseakers, Top New Artist and Alternative New Artist, debuting in the Top 200, and many more. She performed on both The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live! In 2022, completed a largely sold-out international headline tour, and performed an intimate show at the GRAMMY Museum alongside a Q&A hosted by The Los Angeles Times’ Mikael Wood. Following the album release, Soccer Mommy has since hosted Roblox’s most successful Listening Party to date with 10.8 million unique visitors, and she has also shared incredible alt-versions of Shotgun by Magdalena Bay, a slowed and reverbed edit, as well as a Simlish version, available now within The Sims 4 High School Years expansion pack. Soccer Mommy also collaborated with Brain Dead on a limited edition t-shirt, which can be purchased here.
Sometimes, Forever is Soccer Mommy’s boldest and most aesthetically adventurous work yet, and it cements Sophie Allison’s status as one of the most gifted songwriters making rock music right now. The album sees Allison once again tapping into the turn-of-the-millennium sensibilities she’s known for, as she advances her self-made sonic world beyond the present and into the future with experimental-minded production, an expanded moodboard of vintage touchstones, and some of her most sophisticated songwriting to date. Inspired by the concept that neither sorrow nor happiness is permanent, Sometimes, Forever is a fresh peek into the mind of an artist who synthesizes everything — retro sounds, personal tumult, the relatable disorder of modern life — into original music that feels built to last a long time. Maybe even forever.

Praise for Soccer Mommy & Sometimes, Forever: 
"Sophie Allison finds new sonic frontiers...Throughout the album, Soccer Mommy staves off despair with musical craftsmanship" - The New York Times (Critic's Pick)
"Throughout Sometimes, Forever, [Allison] and Lopatin expand on the ’90s palette that has characterized previous Soccer Mommy releases. Bolstering the lingering imprints of Liz Phair, Sheryl Crow, and Sleater-Kinney is a healthy dose of Loveless worship: glide guitars and tendrils of haze." - Pitchfork (8/10)
“[Sometimes, Forever] is Soccer Mommy’s gnarliest and most resplendent, fashioning poppy melodies, disarming lyrics, and twisted sounds into dismayed songs of young adulthood.” - The New Yorker
"The singer/songwriter's vulnerability resulted in two critically acclaimed releases — 2018's Clean and 2020's Color Theory — though Allison's latest may be her most exciting yet." -
“You get some Pixies, you get some Nirvana, you get a little bit of Nine Inch Nails, and Portishead here and there. It’s just interesting how much music is reflected on this record while still sounding very current…she is just really good at mining those influences and making it sound extremely of the moment.” - NPR Music
“Sophie Allison’s emotive rock acquires new dynamism” - Wall Street Journal
"Soccer Mommy deepens her indie-rock brilliance on ‘Sometimes, Forever’...[and] proves herself to be one of the sharpest songwriters around" - Rolling Stone
"Allison has made a bold move that paid off better than we’d ever have expected."
- Variety
"Sometimes, Forever’s marriage of Allison’s lyrical prowess and OPN’s stark, synth-driven sonics makes it by far the darkest and most compelling offering from Soccer Mommy yet." - Billboard
""by far the band’s most sophisticated and adventurous body of work to date. Allison’s inner turmoil has never sounded so spectacular — or so well-rounded."
- Stereogum (Album of the Week)
"sharp indie rock" - Vulture

"one of Gen Z’s brightest voices" - Associated Press
