Shalom has released a new song and video, ‘Soccer Mommy,’ from her forthcoming debut LP Sublimation out March 10 via Saddle Creek. The video takes place at a DIY venue in New Brunswick and features the New Brunswick band Valentine’s Day.
Of the song and its namesake Shalom explains: “This song is about a time in my life that I used to be very upset and embarrassed about, but now I’m like, wow, I feel so much better after writing this song. It’s called ‘Soccer Mommy’ because I got my driver’s license in late 2019 and spent my first year on the road listening to Color Theory and thinking about my 20-year-old self who didn’t deserve the things that happened to her. I love Soccer Mommy. I’m terrified of driving, but I always felt brave listening to ‘Circle The Drain’ on 287 south.”
