Soccer Mommy has released her new single ‘yellow is the color of her eyes’, along with a short film.
Her second new song since 2018 debut album ‘Clean’, after recent drop ‘lucy’, it features Mary Lattimore on harp.
“‘yellow is the color of her eyes’ is a song that is really important to me,” Allison explains. “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.”
Director Alex Ross Perry adds of the accompanying short film: “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.
“Running with her idea of locations evoking where she wrote this song, the concept couldn’t have announced itself more boldly. To that, I shared images from Breaking the Waves and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It wasn’t until we got the footage back that I realized a dash of first-scene-of-Inception had snuck in there, as well.”
