Listen to Soccer Mommy Cover MGMT, MGMT Remix Soccer Mommy
The latest from the Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series sees Andrew VanWyngarden rework “circle the drain” and Sophie Allison play “Indie Rokkers.”
In a few weeks, Soccer Mommy will release a full EP of collaborative covers and remixes wherein Sophie Allison and her peers will be taking on each other’s songs. She launched the campaign by trading tracks with Jay Som and Beabadoobie, with the remaining tracks belonging to MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden and SASAMI.
Today we’re getting the two tracks associated with VanWyngarden: an AVW (under the moniker Gentle Dom) remix of SM’s color theory single “circle the drain” and Sophie’s cover of the MGMT track “Indie Rokkers.” “I love MGMT so it was hard to pick a song to cover,” she shared in a press release this morning. “I ended up choosing ‘Indie Rokkers’ because I thought it would fit my voice and my style the best. I also just thought it’d be cool to do a deep cut since a lot of people have already covered some of the bigger MGMT songs.”
Proceeds from the singles benefit National Bail Out and Oxfam’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, who claim an anonymous donor will match listeners’ contributions dollar for dollar up to $5,000. Stream the tracks below and support them here.
