The eagerly awaited debut album from Snail Mail, Lush is a rather downbeat but beautiful affair. These songs are heaped with passion and angst coupled with a hefty dose of misery, fostering a similar atmosphere to Waxahatchee. However, Lindsay Jordan has the ability to turn up the pace leaving her cinematic blissed-out soundscapes behind in exchange for driving guitars which can be heard on Pristine and Golden Dream.

It’s those relaxed and heartfelt tracks that really set Lush apart though, these delicate spacious songs are exceptional. Her sadness pours from every track, despite faint glimmers of hope throughout. Anytime is Jordan at her most forlorn but equally captivating making it the perfect way to close out this wonderful album.
