Soccer Mommy has released the music video for her latest single “Crawling In My Skin” from her sophomore album Color Theory. The grainy, technicolor video was directed by Adam Kolodny and depicts the singer (real name Sophie Allison) strumming her guitar through trippy, warping clips.
“I’m excited to put out this video for ‘Crawling in My Skin’ right at the end of spooky season,” says Allison. “I hope everyone enjoys this video and their Halloween!”
“Crawling In My Skin” follows visuals released for album tracks “Bloodstream,” “Yellow Is The Color Of Her Eyes,” “Circle The Drain” and “Lucy.”
Color Theory was released in January via Loma Vista/Concord Music as a follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut album Clean, which was released in 2018. The album is split into three dimensions all tied to color. Blue is meant to symbolize sadness and depression, whereas yellow represents physical and emotional illness and gray represents darkness, emptiness, and loss.
“[‘Crawling In My Skin’] was the first time that I sat down and wrote about something other than sadness or heartbreak,” Allison told Pitchfork.
“It’s about me having sleep paralysis and hallucinating around my house, feeling this constant anxiety that a demon was watching me in the night. It felt good to write it because I had never really gotten those feelings in words before. I’ve always focused on some other emotions that were a little bit easier for me to address because I understood them more.”
In addition to the new music video, Soccer Mommy has announced that she will be performing her first full band show of 2020 for Capital One City Parks Foundation’s SummerStage digital series.
The set will air on November 19 on YouTube and SummerStage social media channels. It will be available for viewing for up to two weeks following its conclusion. More information is available here.
