This week, indie rock/bedroom pop musician Soccer Mommy announced that her debut album – titled Clean – is expected to drop on March 2nd. While we wait ever-so-patiently for what is to be one of this year’s most spectacular releases, here’s a fun addition to her catalog… the official music video for her track “Your Dog”. Feisty and in-your-face, the first line of the song is “I don’t want to be your fucking dog.” While we watch a series of sensitive, beautifully portrayed, and oftentimes comical scenes involving twenty-year-old Sophie Allison herself, we’re distracted enough to forget that this song is about freedom.

Admits Sophie about the track:

The song comes from a feeling of being paralyzed in a relationship to the point where you feel like you are a pawn in someone else’s world. The song and the video are meant to show someone breaking away and taking action, but at the same time, it’s only a quick burst of motivation. It’s a moment of strength amidst a long period of weakness.

Keep up with Soccer Mommy here.
