Soccer Mommy—twenty-two year-old Sophie Allison—continues her Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series today with Gentle Dom, a.k.a. Andrew VanWyngarden of MGMT. Following releases with Jay Som and Beabadoobee, Gentle Dom remixes Soccer Mommy’s “circle the drain,” while Sophie covers MGMT’s “Indie Rokkers.” Check out the releases now HERE, and stay tuned for the final installment of the series, featuring SASAMI, out on July 2nd.
“I love MGMT so it was hard to pick a song to cover,” says Allison. “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.” VanWyngarden adds, “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”
The Bandcamp net profits from the Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series will go to Oxfam’s COVID-19 relief fund and National Bail Out, to help combat both Coronavirus and the important fight against police brutality and systematic racism. Oxfam has an anonymous donor who will match every dollar raised for them by this series, up to $5000, which will double the impact of your purchase.
