We all had to adapt during the peak days of the pandemic and NPR's Tiny Desk Concert was no different. Artists booked to appear in the bookish studio of the company's Washington offices started filming themselves at home as the long-running series became more DIY and, for a time, bigger budget, than ever before. Soccer Mommy was among the first to have to cancel an in-studio appearance and film herself on her iPhone for an at home performance of songs from her album Color Theory. Now, three years later, Sophie Allison was able to make it to NPR HQ to do the whole thing properly. Society? It's healing.
Allison references her journey in the new set, telling the studio audience "We're finally doin' it," as she runs through a set comprising four songs from 2018 debut album Clean, Color Theory, and last year's Sometimes, Forever. You can check out the whole thing above. After it finishes be sure to check out Allison discussing the making of Sometimes, Forever on The FADER Interview podcast.
