Live Gallery: Snail Mail – The Great Escape, Brighton

One of the real highlights from the showcase...

American indie sweetheart Lindsey Jordan – known as Snail Mail – brings a diaristic indie-rock outlet and heavily guitar inspired sound, driven by her harmonically colourful playing. Conjuring in summer heat with golden tones, delivering glittery licks and indulging riffs; she’s one you can’t miss.

Like the most affecting songs on her EP, 'Habit', which came out when Lindsey was in High School, the one is long, technically intricate, and hinged on a series of melodic quirks. Favourite ‘Pristine’ is pretty much a masterpiece.

This record sees her guitar hero status, weaving in solos via roughly hewn chords and lo-fi charm. Performing live at the Beach Club, Snail Mail's set will prove to be a highlight of The Great Escape 2018.
