WATCH: Yellow Is the Color of Soccer Mommy’s “yellow is the color of her eyes” Video

Sophie Allison introduces her new seven-minute single with a video directed by Alex Ross Perry.

It’s been quite a week so far for indie bands sharing videos for unreleased singles directed by three-name white dude movie directors—the day after HAIM dropped their PTA-directed “Hallelujah” video, Soccer Mommy is releasing an Alex Ross Perry-helmed short film for the sprawling seven-minute newbie “yellow is the color of her eyes.”

It’s a predictably beautiful track with a predictably beautiful video, which follows Sophie Allison as she makes her way from a sun-soaked Spanish-style interior to an equally jaundiced ocean-side exterior. There’s really just a lot of yellow.

Recalling the visual style of that movie where there are two Jake Gyllenhaals and they hate each other, or the one that a bunch of film bros turned you off of in college, director Alex Ross Perry—who recently also lent a visual to a Vivian Girls single—had a few other films in mind: “Running with [Sophie’s] idea of locations evoking where she wrote this song, the concept couldn’t have announced itself more boldly,” he noted in a press release. “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.”

Along with the new single and video, SM is announcing a string of U.S. and UK tour dates through June, sharing the stage with Tomberlin, Emily Reo, and, uh, The Jesus Lizard. Browse the dates below, and stream or purchase the track here.
