SOCCER MOMMY Releases Short Film for ‘yellow is the color of her eyes’
Nostalgic and warming, yellow is the color of her eyes is the perfect track to cozy up with a hot drink to.
Nashville’s Soccer Mommy, real name Sophie Allison, has unveiled a heartwarming 7-minute epic with yellow is the color of her eyes, following the release of lucy earlier this year which marked the first material from the artist since her 2018 debut album, Clean.
Channelling all things nostalgic, gentle, and pleasant, there is no better description that comes to my mind aside from equating it as the sonic equivalent of a pumpkin spiced latte – a cosy and welcome gentleness that brings ease and calm into the otherwise hectic everyday life.
Speaking of the inspiration behind the track, Sophie shares:
‘yellow is the color of her eyes’ is a song that is really important to me. The song was inspired by a time when I was on the road constantly and I felt like I was losing time – specifically with my mother. It’s also a song that I feel really showcases my writing when it comes to instrumentation, so it’s one that makes me really proud.
Sophie has also treated us to a stunning 7-minute short film to go along with the track, directed by Alex Ross Perry. Alex discloses of the visuals:
The challenge of creating a 7-minute piece was daunting and irresistible in equal measure. Having just completed a film for which the color-coded design of it’s various acts was of the utmost importance, Sophie’s idea of collaborating on a short-form film to compliment her similarly-conceived new music was irresistible.
Running with her idea of locations evoking where she wrote this song, the concept couldn’t have announced itself more boldly. To that, I shared images from Breaking the Waves and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It wasn’t until we got the footage back that I realized a dash of first-scene-of-Inception had snuck in there, as well.
