Having just taken SXSW by storm in addition to a European tour, Soccer Mommy
is getting ready to embark on an extensive North American tour. In celebration of that, she has released a video for the lead single "Cool" off their debut LP Clean
. And oh boy, is it all the ‘90s stoner-rocker-girl goodness you could ever need.
Opening with a scene of Sophie Allison playing her electric guitar on a school soccer field in candy-pink pants, a Crayola-inspire animation of the words "Soccer Mommy" light up the screen in a similar pink. Then the video cuts to the band playing in zebra stripes and leopard print, with Allison adorned in hot pink eyeliner, a mini tiara, and a hot topic necklace. "She'll break your heart and steal your joy like a criminal," Allison sings menacingly from a school desk in a bright blue dress while silly animation drawings of skulls, chains, and broken hearts dance around her, making us nostalgic for Lizzie McGuire.
Images of the band eating brightly colored candy and flipping a hot pink switchblade in and out of its case dance across the screen, along with the band dancing around their van. Allison cuts all the hair off a Barbie doll while crooning that she wants to "be that cool".
The band is touring with Liz Phair and Speedy Ortiz across North America and Europe, and you can find tour dates and tickets here
