Snail Mail shares new single ‘Heat Wave’, taken from her upcoming debut album Lush, out June 8th. “I’m not into sometimes”, sings 18-year-old songwriter and guitar virtuoso Lindsey Jordan in this infectious and affecting guitar pop. Watch the accompanying video, directed by Brandon Herman, below!
The video showcases Jordan’s formidable ice hockey rink chops, picked up during her days on the high-school team, while delving hauntingly into the psyche of growing up – with its paralysing insecurities, crushing lows and defiant highs. “I hadn’t actually been on skates since I quit the high school team junior year, so immediately jumping into shooting this was equal parts difficult and super fun”, Jordan says.
Lush is a refreshing marvel of songwriting and technical composition, that’s both cohesive and explosive, and is available for pre-order here.
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.
