Snail Mail – “Let’s Find An Out”

Snail Mail are releasing their debut album, Lush, in a couple weeks. The two singles we’ve heard from it so far, “Pristine” and “Heat Wave,” are both pummeling rock songs based around a groundswell of different emotions. Lindsey Jordan switches things up for the next track she’s sharing from the album, though. “Let’s Find An Out” is calmer and more delicate than those two by comparison.

It’s deftly played, just Jordan and a gorgeous weave of interlocking guitars, and it gets a lot across in only two minutes. The song straddles the line between hopeful and wistful; there’s talk of starting anew, but doubt over the possibility hangs in the air. “Burn out when you want/ Something that’s lost belongs to you,” she sings. “If someone should pay for it/ Well, I don’t know who.” Her delivery on those last two lines curdles, the uncertainty taking over.

Listen to it below and revisit our recent interview with Jordan.
