Twenty-year-old Soccer Mommy frontwoman Sophie Allison doesn’t want to be “your fucking dog,” or so she barks on the band’s debut record, Clean. Sonically, Soccer Mommy flirts with bedroom pop, with sparse fuzz rock packed densely with taboo confessions and vulnerable pleas to be cool — when in fact, Allison and company are the epitome of effortlessly cool. Reminiscent of fellow sorrowful songwriters Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, and Katie Crutchfield’s Waxahatchee, Allison has sharper edges than her contemporaries, which makes her debut even more searing.

Soccer Mommy will perform Friday, April 27 at the Pike Room; Doors open at 7 p.m.; 1 S. Saginaw St., Pontiac; 248-858-9333; thecrofoot.com; Tickets are $10-$12.
