Soccer Mommy’s ‘Soccer Mommy & Friends’ continues, with this week’s version featuring MGMT’s Andrew Vanwyngarden
The running series sees a different artist team up with Soccer Mommy to release versions of each other’s tracks, with this week’s seeing Soccer Mommy release a cover of MGMT’s ‘Indie Rokkers’ and Andrew from the duo (otherwise known as Gentle Dom) revealing a new remix of ‘circle the drain’
Speaking about MGMT, Soccer Mommy (aka Sophie Ellison) explains: “I love MGMT so it was hard to pick a song to cover, they have so many great ones. I ended up choosing ‘Indie Rokkers’ because I thought it would fit my voice and my style the best. I also just thought it’d be cool to do a deep cut since a lot of people have already covered some of the bigger MGMT songs.”
Andrew added: “V psyched to try out adding some additional seasoning to the already tasteful sounds of Soccer Mommy. With the proceeds going to great organizations like Oxfam COVID relief and The National Bailout fund, it made it even more spicy”
Soccer Mommy & Friends has already seen series releases from the likes of Beabadoobee and Jay Som – with all net profits from Bandcamp sales from this release going to The National Bailout Fund and Oxfam’s Covid-19 Relief Fund.
