Soccer was a five-piece band from Chapel Hill, NC who released two great pop-rock records on Coolidge. Even though they are gone, they are not forgotten.
"One of the most refreshing bands to emerge in recent memory." Billboard
"These young noisepoprockers have written the bible to indie rock, assembling what I call the Seven Sacraments of Soccer: melodic, well-written, fun, happy-go-lucky, sad bizarre, goddamn catchy songs..." Alternative Press
"North Carolina's most polished, MTV-ready rock band..." Time Out New York
"More Exciting than the World Cup..." Magnet
"Wisecracking their way past the Lollapaloozers while backing up their cockiness with driving pop ditties so catchy the band could soon be contradicting their anti-alterna-hype swagger..." New York Press
