RIYL: Julien Baker, Waxahatchee, Phoebe Bridgers
Label: Fat Possum Records
Still in her teens at the time, Nashville singer-songwriter Sophie Allison and her indie rock project Soccer Mommy turned some heads in 2016 with her cassette-only release of For Young Hearts, 8 tracks of minimal bedroom pop budding with melancholy chord progressions and refreshingly frank lyrical accompaniment.¬† It was enough to catch Fat Possum’s attention, signing her in 2017 for a collection LP¬†and now Clean, a more-polished and refined sophomore album.¬† Fans of Waxahatchee, Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers will dig this one for sure.
You can preorder Clean on purble marble vinyl after the ‘buy’ link or on Bandcamp, and there will also be an ultra-clear vinyl variant for indie record stores.¬† Check out the video for Your Dog below.
Clean is an emotional album, heavy on themes of growth, isolation, and change, but balanced by a lightness of touch, and with hooks to spare.
