Getting to know... Soccer Mommy
Tell us about your music. What do you most enjoy singing about, and how would you like your songs to make people feel?
I like singing about my personal experiences in a way that kind of meshes a lot of moments into one to capture the overall feeling. I hope my songs can make people feel like they can relate to me.

How did you go about putting together your new mini-album, ‘Collection’?
I put ‘Collection’ together by kind of choosing the songs we played most live with the band and the ones I played solo usually. It was pretty easy in the end.

Do you have any further releases in the works, or are you taking musician life one step at a time?
I’m working on a new album at the moment, actually. It’s going to be a full-length, and it should be coming out in the not so distant future.

What did you grow up listening to? Do you come from a musical family?
My parents aren’t very musical, but they definitely like music a lot. I grew up listening to stuff like The Who and Bruce Springsteen from my dad, and I kind of started branching out to indie rock, punk, shoegaze - all that stuff - in high school.

Are you a creative person in non-music ways too?
I think I’m creative when it comes to writing or thinking, but I’m not very good at many other forms of art.

What else do you do for fun?
I like to watch TV shows and hang out with friends a lot. I’d also say I like to travel.

Rina Sawayama: "Music has always been my comfort blanket"

Rina Sawayama was always going to be a pop mastermind, but with her debut album out and already gaining the kind of critical acclaim that makes a career, she’s quickly becoming something far more than she ever imagined.

A pop star’s job is not to be boring - so in making best mates with his drum machine, and then naming an album - ‘GENE’ - after it, LA Priest is living his best life.
