Paste

Soccer Mommy’s Collection is refreshing look at your past, a tender look at the moments that made you, you. It shows her growing pains, and she’s not ashamed.

Northern Transmissions

Between tones of Girlpool, Chastity Belt and something all her own, Allison offers listeners the best possible introduction to her music for the uninitiated while leaving a lot of room to grow.

I like that this is called 'Collection,' because it does feel like a great collection of tracks. Songs like, 'Death by Chocolate,' 'Try,' and 'Waiting for Cars,' were the first Soccer Mommy songs I engaged with on a deeper level. I like her songwriting because it is clear that artists like Paramore influence her sound. While there are little sonic similarities, she leans into her emotions regardless if they are endearing or clever. It has that pop-punk sensibility but also embraces elements of ... read more
