With all the hype surrounding their debut EP, Habit, Snail Mail’s first full-length already seems long overdue. And yet, Lush feels supremely fresh, expanding Lindsey Jordan’s intimate bedroom-pop project into sprawling, emotive rock territory.

Lindsey Jordan has been playing guitar since the age of 5, which goes a long way toward explaining the 18-year-old’s uncommonly assured approach to songwriting under her musical pen name, Snail Mail. Lush, Jordan’s debut full-length on storied indie-rock label Matador Records, follows up on her buzzed-about 2016 EP, Habit, with a collection of songs whose lyrics are bursting with the aimless intensity of adolescent emotion, but whose music belies Jordan’s bedrock confidence by resisting the urge to overfill the space between each note. If you’ve ever wondered what Exile In Guyville would sound like written by someone young enough to carry a fake ID, then look no further.

From Snail Mail’s debut album ‘Lush’ out June 8th on Matador Records.
