Snail Mail puts teenage boredom front and centre for the excellent "Thinning"

05 February 2017, 17:10 | Written by Paul Bridgewater

Snail Mail's Lindsey Jordan has a voice that feels both familiar and original.

New song "Thinning" uses that connection to relate a wonderfully fuzzy guitar moment about modern anxiety and it's one of the most powerful songs we've heard from a new artist.

The band fronted by 17-year-old Jordan earned their chops playing on on the DC scene and dropped a debut EP Habit on local label Sister Polygon Records last July. Jordan started writing songs back in 2015 in the Maryland suburbs and Habit channels a specific kind of teenage malaise that's all too familiar.
