Snail Mail announces her full-length debut album, Lush, released on June 8th, along with the release of a new song titled ‘Pristine’, and it’s accompanying visual. It’s a sprawling anthem that finds Lindsey Jordan grappling with suburban ennui and unrequited love. Watch below!
Jordan’s voice rises and falls with electricity throughout the album, spinning with bold excitement and new beginnings at every turn. Lush is a refreshing marvel of songwriting and technical composition, that’s both cohesive and explosive.
Growing up in Baltimore suburb Ellicot City, Jordan began her classical guitar training at age five, and a decade later wrote her first audacious songs as Snail Mail. Around that time, Jordan started frequenting local shows in Baltimore, where she formed close friendships within the local scene. By the time she was sixteen, she had already released her debut EP, Habit.
Since Habit, Jordan has graduated high school, toured the country, and participated in a round-table discussion for the New York Times about women in punk – giving her time to reflect and refine her songwriting process by using tempered pacings and alternate tunings to create a debut both thoughtful and cathartic.
Recorded with producer Jake Aron and engineer Johnny Schenke, with contributions from touring bandmates drummer Ray Brown and bassist Alex Bass as well, Lush sounds cinematic, yet still perfectly homemade.
