Brooklyn-based / South-Africa raised indie rock artist Shalom recently released her latest single/video, ‘Soccer Mommy’ –another look into Shalom’s debut album Sublimation (out 10 March via Saddle Creek). 

‘Soccer Mommy’ was inspired by Soccer Mommy’s album Color Theory and facing what you fear. 

“This song is about a time in my life that I used to be very upset and embarrassed about, but now I’m like, wow, I feel so much better after writing this song. It’s called “Soccer Mommy” because I got my driver’s license in late 2019 and spent my first year on the road listening to Color Theory and thinking about my 20-year-old self who didn’t deserve the things that happened to her. I love Soccer Mommy. I’m terrified of driving, but I always felt brave listening to “Circle The Drain” on 287 south.”


The accompanying video was filmed in a DIY venue in New Brunswick, and features the New Brunswick all-girl band Valentine’s Day.
