Snail Mail's emotional rollercoaster debut album "Lush" out on 8th June!

Listen to the current single "Pristine"!

Snail Mail’s full-length debut album, "Lush", will be released on June 8th on Matador Records and can be pre-ordered HERE. It’s a debut for the record books — a refreshing marvel of songwriting and technical composition, that’s both cohesive and explosive — from a white-hot young artist on the brink of something huge (and she’s just graduated high school!).

In March the album announcement came with the release of a new song titled "Pristine" and its accompanying visual. It’s a sprawling anthem that finds our hero Lindsey Jordan grappling with suburban ennui and unrequited love. “It just feels like the same party every weekend / Doesn’t it?,” she belts, with her strong, crystalline vocals at the forefront, “And if you do find someone better, I’ll still see you in everything / For always, tomorrow, and all the time.”

Ahead of the release, Snail Mail will be playing UK headline shows in London, Leeds, Manchester and Bristol in May, alongside further European and North American dates. Full dates can be found below.

Lindsey Jordan’s voice rises and falls with electricity throughout "Lush", her debut album as Snail Mail, spinning with bold excitement and new beginnings at every turn.

Throughout "Lush", Jordan’s clear and powerful voice, acute sense of pacing, and razor-sharp writing cut through the chaos and messiness of growing up: the passing trends, the awkward house parties, the sick-to-your-stomach crushes and the heart wrenching breakups. Jordan’s most masterful skill is in crafting tension, working with muted melodrama that builds and never quite breaks, stretching out over moody rockers and soft-burning hooks, making for visceral slow-releases that stick under the skin.

"Lush" feels at times like an emotional rollercoaster, only fitting for Jordan’s explosive, dynamic personality.  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, the impetus for her to form a band. By the time she was sixteen, she had already released her debut EP, "Habit", on local punk label Sister Polygon Records.

In the time that’s elapsed since "Habit", Jordan has graduated high school, toured the country, opened for the likes of Girlpool and Waxahatchee as well as selling out her own headline shows, 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 jawdropping 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.

 

Some press about Snail Mail

“Jordan’s singing has a weariness to it that lucidly belies her age, capable of powerhouse wails and tattered expressiveness” -Pitchfork

“It's a sleeker, energetic leap forward for the Baltimore trio, with most songs led by Jordan's crisp, lucid vocals and old-soul lyricism.” –Pigeons And Planes

"Things are moving at a real pace for Snail Mail” –DIY

“Snail Mail's precociousness powers an engine of infectious indie rock” – The Line Of Best Fit
