After first touring Australia in 2019 with headline shows and travelling the country as part of the Falls Festival line up, I OH YOU and Frontier Touring are excited to announce the return of Soccer Mommy, one of the most gifted songwriters making rock music right now.

Having toured alongside the likes of Paramore, Vampire Weekend, Kacey Musgraves, Phoebe Bridgers and more, Sophie Allison (a.k.a. Soccer Mommy) will perform for fans in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide in February 2023. While in the country, Sophie will also perform for West Coast fans as part of the recently announced Perth Festival line-up.

“So excited to be returning to Australia! It’s been a while, but we’ve got lots of new songs to play for you guys ? see u soon! ?” – Soccer Mommy

In the four years since Soccer Mommy last toured Australia, she continued to create emotionally generous music, culminating in her most sophisticated song writing to date on two new studio albums: color theory (2020) and Sometimes, Forever (2022). She also last week debuted a special Halloween take on her song ‘Darkness Forever (Sophie’s Version)’ [watch the video HERE].

Released in June 2022, Sometimes, Forever – produced by Daniel Lopatin/Oneohtrix Point Never [The Weeknd, FKA Twigs, Charli XCX] – topped the US Heatseekers Albums Chart and peaked at #7 on the Australia Hitseekers Albums Chart (ARIA). Packed with clever nods to synth-filled subgenres like new wave and goth, the ultra-catchy love song ‘Shotgun’ rubs up against much gloomier fare, like the Sylvia Plath-referencing ‘Darkness Forever’. The weightless ‘newdemo’ spins delicately layered harmonies and mystical synths into an end-of-the-world reverie; the impending apocalypse has never sounded so jaw-droppingly beautiful.

‘Sophie Allison finds new sonic frontiers…Throughout the album, Soccer Mommy staves off despair with musical craftsmanship’ – The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

‘Soccer Mommy deepens her indie-rock brilliance on ‘Sometimes, Forever’…[and] proves herself to be one of the sharpest songwriters around’ – Rolling Stone

‘by far the band’s most sophisticated and adventurous body of work to date. Allison’s inner turmoil has never sounded so spectacular — or so well-rounded.’ – Stereogum (Album of the Week)

color theory also took out the #1 spot on the US Heatseekers Albums Chart, featuring acclaimed singles ‘bloodstream’, ‘circle the drain’ and ‘yellow is the color of her eyes’. The LP served as a bigger-sounding follow up to her 2018 breakthrough record Clean, continuing to win her fans far outside of the lo-fi bedroom pop scene she cut her teeth playing in.

Witness a generational talent at the height of her powers live on stage when Soccer Mommy returns for her Australian tour in February 2023.
