Why do we like this?

Lindsey Jordan, the Baltimore native behind lo-fi bedroom pop project Snail Mail, already has a feature on Pitchfork's “Best New Music” and record deal with Matador Records under her belt, at just seventeen. There’s wisdom, pain, and introspective observation behind these songs that feels well beyond teenage years, it’s almost hard to believe it’s all coming from someone who just graduated high school.

On her latest single, “Heat Wave," Snail Mail sings of unrequited love. The kind of crush that’s devastating and teaches you that sometimes, no matter what you do, it’s not enough. Jordan croons over bright guitar riffs that feel like summer. We’ve all been there, laying around in the heat with nothing to do but daydream and wonder if there’s anything you could have done differently to be loved. Jordan is a more astute and worldly Taylor Swift, and “Heat Wave” is “Teardrops on My Guitar” for a cooler and more enlightened generation that’s experienced real heartbreak and longing before they’re old enough to drink.

The highly anticipated new album, Lush, comes out June 8th on Matador. Until then, we’ll have to put on “Heat Wave” and dream about summer time.
