Snail Mail is the moniker of Lindsey Jordan, who has not long graduated from high school and yet it appears that she is already on the brink of something huge!
Lindsey played this year’s Great Escape Festival and went down a storm with the punters. Since then she has unleashed her rather pleasant crystalline guitar pop debut album entitled ‘Lush’, which I rather enjoy playing loud on the car’s CD player.
‘Lush’ followed the 2016 release of the introductory EP, titled ‘Habit’, which was quickly noticed by both national press outlets and touring bands alike, landing Jordan a serious amount of attention.
The Baltimore singer, songwriter, and guitar prodigy is the latest addition to the renowned Matador Records roster, having bowled them over with her powerhouse vocals, preternaturally wise lyrics, and mind-bogglingly technical compositions.
Throughout this accomplished new album ‘Lush’, Jordan has a clear and powerful voice, acute sense of pacing, and razor-sharp writing cut through the chaos and messiness of growing up, like the passing trends, the awkward house parties, the sick-to-your-stomach crushes and the heart wrenching breakups.
You can sample the charm and beauty of Snail Mail, when Lindsey drops by in Brighton on 30th October at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar in Middle Street from 8pm to 11pm. Secure your tickets HERE.
