Soccer Mommy launches ‘& friends’ series

Soccer Mommy has launched Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series. The series will see contributions from the likes of MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden, Beabadoobee and Beach Bunny, with new releases every two weeks. 

The first release of the series sees Jay Som cover Soccer Mommy’s ‘lucy’ and Soccer Mommy cover Jay Som’s ‘I Think You’re Alright’.

“I had an extremely fun time recording the ‘lucy’ cover,” says Jay Som. “Sophie has such a special way of entwining catchy melodies and sometimes dark chord progressions. I feel very lucky to be a part of this!” Soccer Mommy continues, “I’m super excited to kick things off with this Jay Som collab because Melina really made such an awesome new version of ‘lucy’. I have also always loved her song ‘I Think You’re Alright,’ so it was great to get a chance to cover it. It has such a sweet tenderness to it that just makes you feel warm inside.”

All proceeds from Bandcamp sales from this series will be donated to Oxfam’s COVID-19 relief fund..Oxfam is working with partners to reach more than 14 million people in nearly 50 countries and the US to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 in vulnerable communities and support people’s basic food needs and livelihoods. Women and girls usually bear a disproportionate burden of care in a crisis like this one, and Oxfam has a proven record of helping women cope during and recover after these crises in ways that allow them to be safer and stronger than ever.

Oxfam has an anonymous donor who will match every dollar raised by this series, up to $5000, which will double the impact of your purchase.
