Snail Mail announces debut record Lush and shares superb lead single "Pristine"

21 March 2018, 13:51 | Written by Laurence Day

It looks like the rumours were true after all - Snail Mail's debut album Lush is coming in June, and you can hear new song "Pristine" now.

Snail Mail bandleader Lindsey Jordan recorded the album with producer Jake Aron and engineer Johnny Schenke, with contributes from touring members Ray Brown and Alex Bass. The full-length follows impressive 2016 EP Habit, released when she was just 16.

Lead preview "Pristine" is a near-five-minute trip through Jordan's psyche via roughly hewn chords and lo-fi charm.

Snail Mail kicks off a massive North American tour tonight in her hometown of Baltimore, before heading to to the UK and Europe in May and then back across the Pond again after. Find out the full live plans.

Snail Mail is one of our five Ones To Watch For 2018, and earlier this year she played our new music festival The Five Day Forecast with Soccer Mommy and Honey Harper.
