Soccer Mommy Shares A Cinematic Video For Her 7-Minute Epic ‘Yellow Is The Color Of Her Eyes’

Soccer Mommy (real name Sophie Allison) made her return recently with “Lucy,” her first single of the year. Now, she’s back with another one, and her 7-minute epic “Yellow Is The Color Of Her Eyes” is also accompanied by a cinematic video, directed by Alex Ross Perry. In the golden-hued clip, Allison walks to the ocean as the emotional track plays.

Allison says of the song, “‘Yellow Is The Color Of Her Eyes is a song that is really important to me. The song was inspired by a time when I was on the road constantly and I felt like I was losing time — specifically with my mother. It’s also a song that I feel really showcases my writing when it comes to instrumentation, so it’s one that makes me really proud.”

Perry also said of making the video, “Running with her idea of locations evoking where she wrote this song, the concept couldn’t have announced itself more boldly. To that, I shared images from Breaking The Waves and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. It wasn’t until we got the footage back that I realized a dash of first-scene-of-Inception had snuck in there, as well.”
