Now Watching: Soccer Mommy – 'yellow is the color of her eyes'

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Soccer Mommy, aka Sophie Allison, is back with a stirring new single, this time sharing 'yellow is the color of her eyes'. The track also features Mary Lattimore on harp. Soccer Mommy continues to grow as an artist, and 'yellow is the color of her eyes', and 'lucy', which was released back in September, are both impressive additions to her growing catalogue of exquisite tunes. 

In a statement, Allison notes that her new song is immensely important to her, "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."

The seven-minute masterpiece has also been released alongside a video that's as heart-wrenching as the song. Directed by the very talented Alex Ross Perry, the video is presented like a short-film and has been carefully constructed to represent the emotions brimming in 'yellow is the color of her eyes'. 

He said, "The challenge of creating a 7-minute piece was daunting and irresistible in equal measure. Having just completed a film for which the color-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."
