Soccer Mommy – “Scorpio Rising” Video

“Scorpio Rising” is the high water mark on Soccer Mommy’s debut album, Clean — which we named one of the best albums of 2018 so far — and today the song has gotten a music video to go along with it.

It’s a meditative slow burn that suggests some alien interference. Allison appears like a hologram from outer space, smeary and washed out. She walks around an empty community hall and through a field like she’s not even totally there, holding a microphone and doing karaoke to her own song. There’s an idling car straight from the lyrics — “Kissed you in the park/ We’ll meet up after dark/ In your car with the backseat, southern summer” — and it ends with Allison being blinded by the totality of the moon.

Soccer Mommy has also announced a new run of tour dates, including a few opening up for Kacey Musgraves on her North American tour. Watch the “Scorpio Rising” video (which was previously an Apple Music exclusive) and see the band’s tour itinerary below.
