Speaking about the first instalment in the series, Soccer Mommy said: “I’m super excited to kick things off with this Jay Som collab because Melina really made such an awesome new version of ‘lucy’. I have also always loved her song ‘I Think You’re Alright,’ so it was great to get a chance to cover it. It has such a sweet tenderness to it that just makes you feel warm inside”.
Jay Som added: “I had an extremely fun time recording the ‘lucy’ cover, Sophie has such a special way of entwining catchy melodies and sometimes dark chord progressions. I feel very lucky to be a part of this comp!”
The releases can be streamed/downloaded over on Bandcamp here, with all proceeds from Soccer Mommy & Friends being donated to Oxfam’s Covid-19 relief fund – working with partners to reach more than 14 million people in nearly 50 countries around the world who are left vulnerable during this time.
