about

“Soccer Mom have a jangle that weighs heavy, at times sneaking into the realm of post-rock, while their dreampop tendencies are too immersed in noise and impatience to float without direction. Whatever, it just fucking crushes.” Boston Phoenix

“Warm, loud, and fuzzy in all the right ways, Soccer Mom make music to submerge one’s brain into, just perfect guitar music to disappear into and never look back.” The Creative Intersection

Boston quartet Soccer Mom are proud to announce the release of their self-titled full-length album, out May 1st, 2014 on 100m Records. The album comes on the heels of their six-song EP You Are Not Going to Heaven (2011), and their twosong single Brides/Canoe (2012), which both garnered critical praise. The band spent much of 2013 writing, recording, and playing live around the northeast, sharing the stage with such acts as Weekend, Whirr, Nothing, and Speedy Ortiz.

The record showcases the band’s continued exploration of textures and tones, expansive dynamics, and the delicate balance between discord and melody. The nine songs were recorded and mixed in May and June of 2013 at The Napoleon Complex in Somerville, MA, with engineer Shaun Curran. Several tracks feature vocals by Deborah Warfield
(Swirlies).

Praise for Soccer Mom’s Brides/Canoe single:

“Soccer Mom continue their quest for finding the plateau where walls of noise meet angularity, pop nous and a sliver of hope amongst the towering banalities of life. Brides/Canoe flows on their already sizable adulation of the shoegaze aesthetic, yet we see more of the severer, acerbic lashes that have helped the quartet differentiate itself from the ever-burgeoning pack. The key is in the melody, something that many other Shields acolytes are blinded to, and will only become more defined over time. Another solid stepping stone towards that much-feted first LP…” Sonic Masala

“With the somewhat naturalistic title Brides/Canoe, Soccer Mom has released an epic supernova, a two song CD single with 100m Records … and has continued honing thick experimental noise into lush, poignant pop. Soccer Mom continue to explore the possibilities of dissonance with layered overdriven guitar. They release any expectations and take you along for this surprising ride into epic pop places, delivering a sample of what’s coming on their full length.” QRO Magazine
