Soccer Mommy’s scheduled NPR Tiny Desk concert may have fallen through, but she’s used the opportunity to begin their series of home concerts, as opposed to gigs filmed in the office.
According to NPR, “The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It’s the same spirit – stripped-down sets, an intimate setting – just a different space.”
The three tracks Soccer Mommy (AKA Sophie Allison) plays in front of her webcam are all from her recent LP Color Theory: Bloodstream, Circle the Drain and Royal Screw Up.
She also described what she’d been getting up to in self-isolating: “I’ve been stuck inside, like many of you, for I don’t even know how many days now. I’ve lost track. I’ve pretty much just been writing and recording music and playing Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing and Pokémon. It’s been kind of chill, I guess.”
She also introduced “Circle the Drain” as a track “about being depressed and staying inside all day, which I’m sure some of you can relate to right now.”
