Soccer Mommy (Sophie Allison) got sorta famous after releasing her second album, Color Theory
, in 2020, and she didn't much care for it, preferring to be out of the public eye and go about her business without being recognized. In "Unholy Affliction" she struggles with the inherent conflict that comes from being a solo artist yet trying to stay at least partially hidden.
"The whole idea is, I don't want to be a part of a system where I'm just an object that's functioning for the wants and needs of a bigger power - but I do want success and perfection," she told Rolling Stone
. "It's that struggle between drive and morality."
